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 or Stripe account. If you would prefer to join and pay by cheque, please use this form Membership form Mar 2020.pdf  If you want to renew and pay your subscription by cheque, please use the form sent with the March issue of the magazine or download the form from our website ngrs.org.

If you choose full membership, you will receive printed copies of both The Narrow Gauge and the bi-monthly 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 as e-copies, by email link to a pdf copy of the magazine.

With Visits & e-NGN membership, you will receive an e-copy of Narrow Gauge News, keeping you up to date with happenings in the World of Narrow Gauge Railways.

All members are also invited on the Society's visits to narrow gauge and miniature railways, which often involve special access for photography and to areas normally off limits.

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.
