The N Gauge Guild of South Africa is a dedicated club which caters for model train enthusiasts who have limited space. The working scale is 1:160 (or 1:148 if you model British), roughly half the size of HO scale model trains.
Based in Krugersdorp, South Africa, the guild has a membership of about 100, whose interests range from modern American to historic European eras. We meet every six weeks at St Ursula's Convent, exhibit our magnificent layout at shopping centers and are in great demand at major hobby events all over Gauteng Province.
Members are encouraged to build a N-Trak module which is connected to others to form a huge club layout. Scenery techniques are used to create a variety of landscapes found all over the world. Currently we can build a layout in excess of 55 modules, with new ones constantly being added.
One of our aims with public exhibitions is to show the public how easy it is to get started in this absorbing pastime. We offer technical support and advice, and actively promote membership of the club at our exhibitions. New members of all ages and skills are welcome, but especially younger beginners. Membership fees are R120 per family per year.
