Home of the Ground Level 5 inch Gauge Mainline Association

We promote 5" gauge, 1  /     inch to one foot (1.0625 ins - 1ft) scale modelling of British main line railways.

We hold rallies around the country at a variety of tracks.

There are club projects, currently track and signal building.

All members are welcome at all club events, you don't need a loco or even a wagon to participate.

There is an active forum where there is a huge knowledge base of fellow members.

The club magazine "Turnout" is circulated to all members.
