Welcome to the Narrow Gauge Railway Society 

Do you love visiting full-size narrow gauge railways? Or enjoy creating models of narrow gauge railways, in any scale from the tiny up to the model engineering scales? Or enjoy reading about narrow gauge railways past and present? If your answer is 'yes', to any of these questions then you should join the Narrow Gauge Railway Society.

To join the Society on-line, or to renew your membership, simply click on the button 'Join us/Renew', alongside. You will be asked to pay by credit card, or debit card or by using your PayPal account. If you would prefer to join and pay by cheque, please use this form Membership form March 2018.pdf.  If you want to renew and pay your subscription by cheque, please use the form sent with the March issue of the magazine.

If you choose full membership, you will receive printed copies of both The Narrow Gauge and Narrow Gauge News, ​together with printed copies of other notices and publications.

With e-membership, you will receive printed copies of The Narrow Gauge, but Narrow Gauge News (and certain other notices and publications) will be sent to you by email, as a link to a pdf copy of the magazine.

If you live in Europe, we will mail your magazines using international priority mail; we use airmail for members who live in the rest of the World. This should ensure delivery to addresses in Europe within 3 to 5 days, with delivery to the rest of the World in 5 to 7 days.

Associate membership is for family members of a full member or e-member. Your associate member can use our library or join us on visits to narrow gauge railways. You can include payment for Associate membership with your payment for full or e-membership.

Visits-only membership is for people who wish to join us on visits to narrow gauge railways, but are not full members, e-members or family associate members. We will not accept anyone on our visits unless they have joined the Society in one or other membership category.

The Narrow Gauge Railway Society is a company limited by guarantee, registered in England & Wales number 9925208
