Archived News - Bag16mm
We are the local group of the Association of Narrow Gauge Modellers. Our membership is drawn from the neighbouring counties of Beds. Bucks. and Herts and currently stands at around 30 members.
We meet monthly at the Eaton Bray Village Hall near Dunstable. The clubs exhibition layout is called Ridgmont, which takes its name from the Bedfordshire village were the club was form over 20 years ago. During our meetings members bring along their own locomotives and rolling stock to run on the club layout Ridgmont and other visiting layouts. The locomotives are a mix of Live Steam engines most of which are gas fired but a small number of members have coal fi red engines as well. During quiet periods when a member is waiting to raise steam a strange assortment of battery powered engines can be seen making leisurely progress around the layout.
All visitors are always welcome at our club meetings, any visiting 16mm Members from other groups are also welcome to bring along one of their own engines.
A full list of our clubs meeting dates can be found on the clubs Web Site at www.bag16mm.org.uk.
If you would like further detail or are interested in joining our club you may contact our club secretary: Chris Pretty.
