Worldwide Group


This group is for N Gauge modellers interested in modelling railways outside Great Britain, regardless of age or period. This includes steam, diesel, and electric traction. As a member of the WorldWide Group you can follow your own interests while benefiting from the advantages of a larger international society.

The WorldWide group offers:

  • A bi-monthly Newsletter: ‘The Globe’
  • A bi- monthly Globe Supplement
  • A ZOOM meeting where members talk about what they are doing (and why) and try to answer any questions members may be struggling with.
  • A full archive of all Globes, Supplements and special documents is available to group members.
  • An annual convention dedicated to Worldwide N Gauge modelling

The bi-monthly Magazine : ‘The Globe’ includes articles of general interest, modelling tips, prototype news, product reviews, sales, wants, etc. This is delivered by email.  Our bi-monthly Globe Supplement gives pictures of real railways, overflow from The Globe, items of general railway interest and some news items.   This is deliverable by e-mail.

We also have a newsletter exchange programme with other overseas societies / groups and have direct link with INGANET (The International N Gauge Network), so that information can be exchanged with various organisations.
