About the NGS Shop

The NGS Shop is run by the Shop Manager – a member of the society acting as a volunteer. The Shop Manger is also a member of the NGS Management Committee.

The NGS Shop does not keep “shop” hours or have a dedicated NGS Phone number.

The Shop Manager can be contacted by email at or by post at the following address:

NGS Shop Manager, 5 Sarazen Green, Livingston, EH54 8SZ

The NGS Shop stocks a wide range of NGS own products – see the Products page for further information.

Orders can be placed with the NGS Shop by using the joint Membership/Shop online store at or by post to the above address.

The online store can accept payment by debit/credit card or by PayPal account.

Mail orders can be paid by debit/credit card or by cheque (made payable to N Gauge Society).

Only fully paid-up NGS members may make purchases from the NGS Shop.

Members are requested to allow 21 days for delivery (although 7 days is typical in UK/Europe).

Members can track the progress of their orders on the NGS Shop Order Status page.


Below are some commonly asked questions about the NGS Shop.

When will I receive my order?

Under normal circumstances you should receive your ordered items within one week for deliveries to the UK. Orders posted to most European countries are the same, but further afield are longer and depend on the destination country. Circumstances are not normal when – there are bank/public holidays; the Shop Manager is away or when then are high levels of ordering underway – such as with the release of a new product.

My order is overdue – where is it?

There are a number of reasons why your order can be delayed:

  • Your membership as expired (expect a prompt from the Membership Secretary).
  • You didn’t add P&P (expect a prompt from the Membership Secretary).
  • The shop is particularly busy (look out for notices on the NGS website)
  • The Shop Manager is away (never more than 2 weeks)
  • Your order contains a large number (10 or more) of the same item, then it may be processed differently and so be delayed.
  • Your order contains both membership subscription and product purchases, then it may be delayed as it has to go through two separate processes.

Check to make sure your membership is current and that you paid the appropriate P&P. Check the recent order status page on the NGS website for any information. Otherwise, if the order is over 21 days delayed, then contact the Shop Manager to make enquiries. Note that the vast majority of orders are tracked through Royal Mail these days and members who supply an email address will normally receive a tracking number when the order is posted.

I forgot to add P&P to my order – what can I do?

The simplest and quickest solution is to use the NGS online shop to create a “Sundry Order” to the value of the P&P charge appropriate to your order. Please add a comment in the ‘Additional Information’ box to say what the sundry payment is for, for example “To pay P&P for order number xxxxx”. If you are unable to use the internet for payment, then please send a cheque or payment card details to the Shop Manager.

How can I get help on using the NGS online shop?

The NGS online shop can be daunting for the first-time user. There is however a beginner’s guide available by clicking here.

If that doesn’t help, please contact the Shop Manager or just post you order instead.

Can I phone-in an order?

It is possible to phone in an order, but this is generally discouraged.

The Shop Manager is a voluntary role and so is not available at all times to take member’s calls. The Shop Manager’s phone is a personal one – not a Society phone and so is used for other calls and outgoing calls are paid for by the Shop Manager. If the Shop Manager is ‘out and about’ it may not be possible to record details of the order. However where a member has accessibility issues with other ordering channels, it is possible to arrange for orders to be taken over the phone.

Can I email an order?

It is possible to email an order to the NGS shop, but members are warned that emails are inherently insecure and that under no circumstances should payment card details be included within the text of an email.

Where do I post mail orders to?

Since May 2017, the NGS Shop address has been 5 Sarazen Green, Livingston, West Lothian, EH54 8SZ. Please take care if using old order forms which may contain previous shop manager addresses.
