Welcome

The Ten & a Quarter Inch Gauge Railway Society AGM will be held at Haven Place, Stapleford Miniature Railway near Melton Mowbray at 2pm on Sunday 4 September 2016.

All are welcome to attend. Membership fees, £10, can be paid on the day and you will be able to attend and vote at the AGM.

With nearly 2 mile of scenic track, the one fifth scale SMR is home to a number of locomotives, some of which will be running during the day. For more information about Stapleford Miniature Railway please visit the Friends of Stapleford MR website. Directions can be found here and the AGM agenda can be downloaded here.

The Ten & a Quarter Inch Gauge Railway Society is an internet based organisation for everyone interested in miniature railways between 8 and 12½ inches. The track gauge of 10¼ inches allows for a wide variety of trains to be constructed and run. The history of this gauge started with private railways and quickly became an option for pleasure railways open to the public.

We welcome your news and photographs. Please email news, pictures, snippets, tips and whatever you think might interest your fellow enthusiasts.

We will provide a source of information and support for railways principally of 10¼ inch gauge but also for those railways between 8 inch gauge and up to and including 12½ inch gauge who have so far not been covered by other groups.

There are now a number of 10¼ inch gauge public railways which carry very significant passenger numbers. They are spread across the UK from Scotland to Cornwall.
