The N Gauge Journal
The ‘N Gauge Journal’ is a full colour A5 sized magazine style booklet consisting of around 88 pages, that is an indispensable and essential read for members.
Its aims are to encourage and support railway modelling in general and N gauge modellers in particular. We try to include a wide range of articles, from basic simple type suitable for the beginners, right up to the more complex for the most fastidious and enthusiastic modeller, so that the journal is `inclusive` for all members. It aims to be inspirational, instructive and supported with photographs, plans and diagrams.
The contents include articles and features about N gauge railway modelling such as:
- Reviews and reports of new products
- Articles about member’s layouts and model projects
- Features on prototype subjects and their modelling options
- `How to` undertake various modelling projects
- Hints, tips and skills technique advice
- Letters about modelling issues and comments on articles
- A limited selection of relevant trade adverts
(For an introductory pack and free sample journal, send £1.50 (£2.50 overseas) to: N Gauge Society Dept. W,
52 Gainsborough Road, WALLASEY, CH45 8PT.)
