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.

Our diary of events for 2020 will be updated

as and when our Members decide

they would like to host events,

subject to coronavirus restrictions

At the present time we have no planned events.

Our Group is linking up with the South West Wales 16mm Group for a virtual meet-up over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. We also linked up over the May VE Day Bank Holiday weekend, and also the Easter weekend. You can view the various contributions from both groups on all these occasions by clicking HERE:

It is with great sadness that we have lost one of our former Members, Keith Hunt, who died recently after a long battle with illness. Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family and friends at this difficult time.

Rest in Peace Keith.


Dave Mills has put together some words about Keith's life for us, which you can read by clicking here.

Coronavirus - the social distancing and lockdown measures

announced by the Government mean that our Group events will be put on hold for some time, but, as a Group, we aim to keep in contact through emails, telephone calls and news updates through this website.

Some of our Members have historic links with the North West Wales area, but currently live further away. The Easter weekend virtual meet-up provided a fine opportunity for some of them to share their railways with the rest of us - and the distance between us all was unnoticeable in the virtual world!
