Welcome

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.

Advance notice of AGM. This year’s AGM of The Ten and a Quarter Inch Gauge Railway Society will be held at Wells Station on the Wells and Walsingham Light Railway, Wells Next-the-Sea, Norfolk. NR23 1QB at 2pm on Sunday 3 September 2017. All society members are welcome and encouraged to attend. More news to follow.

We welcome your news and photographs. Please email news, pictures, snippets, tips and whatever you think might interest your fellow enthusiasts. You can join the society here.

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.
