The Ten & a Quarter Inch Gauge Railway Society is an internet based organisation for everyone interested in miniature railways between 8 and 12½ inches. The track gauge of 10¼ inches allows for a wide variety of trains to be constructed and run.
Because of Covid restrictions almost all of the society’s activities were suspended however we very much welcome your news and photographs for the website and our occasional newsletter as well as encouraging participation in our Facebook group. Indeed the Facebook group is now the principal means of communications within the 10 1/4″ society.
Please email news, pictures, snippets, tips and whatever you think might interest your fellow enthusiasts. The society is now free to join and you can do so here.
We will provide a source of information and support for railways principally of 10¼ inch gauge but also for those railways between 8 inch gauge and up to and including 12½ inch gauge which have so far not been covered by other groups.
The history of our gauge started with private railways and quickly became an option for pleasure railways open to the public. There are now a number of 10¼ inch gauge public railways which carry very significant passenger numbers. They are spread across the UK from Scotland to Cornwall.
