Mini Stand

The Mini Stand, at which we are pleased to welcome new members and offer renewals to current members, visits a number of shows around the country each year.


The Mini-Stand has been redesigned and updated and entered the exhibition circuit early in 2022. The Mini-Stand visits the smaller exhibitions that Tim and the Main Stand do not attend and on average completes two events a month.

What is the Mini Stand

The mini stand is designed primarily as an information stand with the ability to sign up new members and process membership renewals. It will also have a Mini-Stand Shop from August 2023 selling NGS Ready to Run Models (More Details down the page)

The Mini Stand comprises five information board which promotes the following NGS facilities:

  • NGS (Online) Shop
  • Benefits of NGS Membership and a list of the various types of membership and the associated membership fees.
  • NGS Area Groups information
    • List of Area Group Points of Contact
    • Map of the local Area with the locations of Area Groups Identified
    • Map of the UK identifying all the area groups in the British Isles
  • Latest News – Hot of the press news sometimes before it is seen in the Journal or Newsletter
  • Mini Stand Shop Information
    • Current Stock & Stock Levels

The mini stand also has two dioramas for displaying NGS Exclusive Ready to Run Models, a central rotating turntable for displaying models.

There are also two running tracks (one DC and one DCC) running NGS Stock. Please note there is also the option to use this track to test anything you have bought at the event. Just ask for assistance.
