WorldWide Area Group

wwg-badge-ver-2This group is for N Gauge modellers interested in modelling railways outside Great Britain, regardless of age or period. This includes steam, diesel, and electric traction. As a member of the WorldWide Group you can follow your own interests while benefiting from the advantages of a larger international society.

The WorldWide group offers:

  • A bi-monthly Newsletter: ‘The Globe’
  • A bi- monthly Globe Supplement
  • A full archive of all Globes, Supplements and special documents is available to group members.
  • An annual convention dedicated to Worldwide N Gauge modelling

The bi-monthly Magazine : ‘The Globe’ includes articles of general interest, modelling tips, prototype news, product reviews, sales, wants, etc. This is delivered by e-mail but can be delivered on a bi-monthly CD at a premium.  Our bi-monthly Globe Supplement gives pictures, overflow from The Globe, items of interest and occasional news items.   This is deliverable by e-mail but is also included on the CD’s.

We also have a newsletter exchange programme with other overseas societies and have direct link with INGANET (The International N Gauge Network), so that information can be exchanged with various organisations.
