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.

We wish Ian Blackburn a speedy recovery from

his recent illness and forthcoming operation, and

hope to see him back at our events during 2020.

Phil describes the photograph and the engine's history below:


Motorail Simplex No.20073 of 1950 at Maenofferen Slate Quarry, Blaenau Ffestiniog on 19th December 1963.  On that date it was working the line to the waste tip.


A 2ft gauge 2½ ton 20hp diesel loco, it was delivered new to Birmingham Corporation Water Department at Knighton, Radnor, for use on a pipelaying scheme.  When work on that scheme finished it was returned to the builder and resold to Maenofferen in 1961.


It went for preservation in 1975 at various locations, and is currently at the Richmond Light Railway, a private line in Kent.

Our diary of events for 2020 will be updated

as and when our Members decide

they would like to host events.


At the present time our next event will be:
