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.
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.
The history of our gauge started with private railways and quickly became an option for pleasure railways open to the public.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.
New safety guide, HS2020 – Managing health and safety at passenger-carrying miniature railways, which has been fully endorsed by HSE, is now available.
