Useful Narrow Gauge websites

Postby British Rail » Sun Apr 29, 2007 7:39 pm

Hi guys, I thought I had better start this thread as I think it would be of great use to new narrow gauge modellers and would save a lot of time too. Any websites that helped you or enhanced your narrow gauge modelling in one way or another please suggest. So to get the ball rolling I'll sugest the INGR site especially the railways section, this is located at the top in the navbar.

Thought it was a good idea - as you say it will help people out in the future.

I'm sure Ben (Bunji) will have a few links as will George

Oooh, gosh, thanks! :oops: I'd never consider myself to be an expert in NG, I can just flog a good list of links and pretend I know what I'm talking about. :) I don't have Uni to worry about for two years or so!

Amberley Working Museum's Narrow Gauge Site. This is independant of the Museum site, so there is a hell of a lot more information :P

If you want any close up pictures of any stock at all, do not hesitate to contact me :wink:
