Welcome to the web site of the
East Dorset Area Group of the N Gauge Society.
Club meetings are usually on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month
The majority of our members belong to the N Gauge Society, an organisation whose aim is to further the cause of British N Gauge modelling, but membership of the N Gauge Society is NOT required to join us and in fact we welcome modellers in all gauges as the principles and techniques are all interchangeable!
We are also members of the Wessex Association of Model Railway Clubs and actively support their exhibitions.

We retired and dismantled dismantled our modular layout, which had seen fifteen years of service. Not only did it require a lot of maintenance but seemed to be getting heavier as time went by. Some have said it was because we were getting older!
We have built a new exhibition layout which is twenty feet long and consist of a country branch station. The layout has been shown at a couple of our exhibitions and at BMRE 2020 was fully run as an exhibition layout nearing completion, unfortunately it also threw up a number of "snags" that required adjustments to the wiring. Resolving these issues was then interupted by the Covid virus that affected us all. We are hoping to get to work on it again soon. As any modeller will tell you "it is never finished"!
We meet from 6:00pm on the second (2nd) and fourth (4th) Fridays of each month, (see dates) at "Pelhams" - Kinson Community Centre in Bournemouth. If you model railways or trams especially in N gauge, come along and see what we get up to.
