New Member’s Handbook 2016-10-12T13:53:26+00:00

The New Member’s Handbook is supplied to every new member as part of their joining pack. It is a 64-page full-colour guide to all aspects of 16mm modelling, with chapters on:

  • Garden Railway origins
  • Scales and gauges
  • The prototype
  • Wheels, standards and other guidelines
  • Planning the railway
  • Foundations and trackwork
  • Steam and battery motive power
  • Remote and radio control
  • Rolling stock, lineside buildings
  • Security

The latest issue of the new member’s guide was revised in late 2011. It will help you to build that garden railway you always dreamed of – or dream about that garden railway you’ve promised yourself you’ll build one day.
