Group Description

Forum for all interested in the narrow gauge railways found outside Europe and North America - their history, equipment, operation and modelling.

These railroads are as diverse as the countries they served, but they shared the characteristic of importing their technology, and much of their equipment, from three major sources - the United States, Britain, and Germany, and to a lesser extent France and other European countries. Thus they offer incredible variety, and are often poorly documented.

While not wishing to be too prescriptive, "Narrow Gauge" in this context is usually regarded as narrower than metre gauge. Main line Metre (3'3") and Cape (3'6") gauges were often standard in these countries, and operated and looked like standard gauge railways in other countries. But we are happy to discuss any unusual or "backwoods" narrow gauge, whatever the gauge.

Modellers whether freelance or prototype welcome. Commercial notices directly related to the subject are acceptable.
