Discussion GroupsThe 16mmngm E-group is the main mailing list for 16mm scale narrow gauge railway modellers. This discussion forum on 'Yahoo Groups' is a great place to ask questions about garden railways.
There are numerous other related Yahoo Groups related to railways in 16mm
and "G" scales, including specialist topics such as steam-loco building
and low cost garden railways.
The 16mm AssociationThe Association of 16mm Narrow Gauge Modellers aims to promote Narrow Gauge Model-making in the scale of 16mm/ft, and other "nearby" scales. The association's main aims are to help people to enjoy the hobby, and as such, does not specify what scale or gauge you should model in.
Among other things, the association produces a quarterly magazine (16mm Today),
and runs an annual exhibition at Stoneleigh park in Coventry
GardenRail magazinePublished every month, GardenRail Magazine covers all aspects of outdoor model railways. Most issues will include a range of scales from the sort of loco you can hold in your hand to large ride-on railways.
