Welcome to the website of the

North-West Wales 16mm Model Railway Group

This is a Group that is associated with the

'Association of 16mm Narrow Gauge Modellers'

and serves North West Wales and the Isle of Anglesey.

The Group was formed in 2009 and presently has just over

30 members, the majority of whom are based

in the North West Wales area.


Our group exists to encourage those who are actively engaged in, or who have an interest in, the art of modelling items of railway locomotives, rolling stock, track, signalling, and other railway infrastructure, in garden scales and settings.

Above, Ruston & Hornsby No.175127 of 1935 at Maenofferen Slate Quarry, Blaenau Ffestiniog, on 19th December 1963.  


Photographed during the lunch time meal break it was being used during the day to bring slate blocks from the top of the mine access incline through the tunnel to the slate mill.


A 2ft gauge loco with a 18/21hp diesel engine, it was supplied new to the Gardden Lodge Brickworks, Ruabon, for use in the claypit and transferred to Maenofferen when the tramway was replaced by road vehicles around the end of WW2.

Fitted with a different radiator and engine (?) it was out of use by 1989 and when last seen in 2010 it was still there, but lying derelict in the slate mill.  It may still be there .....
