West Sussex Group

Welcome to our website which will keep you up to date with the events as they happen. We need articles to put up here so if you have some information that you would like to share please send it in. Any information that you wish to go into the G Scale Society Magazine then please send that into Keith Whitcomb. Please remember you can send in direct any articles to the society but please can you copy Keith in so that we do not duplicate entries.

If you are a new member or thinking of joining us then please read the latest news, view events and you can see what is coming and what has passed, view the gallery and see photo records of the events and gardens. Go to contacts and find our contact details.

We do not meet on a weekly or monthly basis but as and when someone wishes to open their garden for members and friends to join in an afternoon of running your trains on someone else’s garden track.

Remember we also welcome younger members with an adult and we do not have a problem with running Thomas and his friends or Play mobile trains.

Across the winter we do hold indoor events. Check the Diary updates.

What do we run? This will depend on the layout but over the year it is usually possible to find an afternoon when one or more of the following options will be available:-

  • Live steam,
  • Multi train systems of varying kinds,
  • Radio controlled battery
  • Analogue.

Come and talk to us as there is a wealth of knowledge about setting up and running G Scale (45mm) trains in the garden
Please let us know what you think of events and how we can improve them.
