Welcome to the web site of the M5 M50 NGM
Wishing all our members a very Happy New Year for 2021.
We hope that you received everything that you needed/wanted for Christmas and have enjoyed the quieter than normal festive period.
Covid-19 update 07/01/2021:
With all parts of our catchment area in lock-down all our meetings are cancelled until further notice.
We will provide an update when the current Government restrictions are relaxed and we have more information. Hopefully the roll out of the vaccines during 2021 will enable us to start meeting and enjoying exhibitions later in the year.
As we haven’t been able to meet since February 2020 we have been producing a monthly newsletter to help us stay in touch. These are available here:
Bonus Christmas Issue! M5-M50-NGM-News-December-2020
We will continue to produce the newsletter even when our meetings resume as some of us will either not wish to attend or be able to attend. These will be based on any news from our meetings and any contributions. This way we should be able to keep in touch with as many members as possible.
The newsletters have been emailed out to all the members for which we have an email. If you haven’t received any message it will either be because we don’t have your email or we have the wrong email. Please contact us if you wish to be added to the email distribution.
Formed around 2010 from a group of like-minded narrow gauge railway enthusiasts, the group was aptly named due to the meeting location at Twyning. The Village hall kindly agreed to the construction of a small cupboard where the test track boards and controllers could be stored.
The first exhibition was held at the Corse and Stanton Village Hall in October 2011 and repeated in the following two years. The fourth show was help in October 2015, again at the Corse and Stanton Village Hall.
Whilst these shows were great fun, the venue was too small to accommodate all of the exhibitors and traders who wanted to come along. Hence, it was decided to hold a much larger show in Tewkesbury in 2017. Although that show was a great success, the venue was too fragmented and we have decided to return to the original (albeit much smaller) venue.
Photo galleries for the 2012, 2015, 2017 and 2019 shows are available on the Gallery page.
Our last show was held on the 19th October 2019 at Corse & Staunton Village Hall and at the moment we have not made a decision on when to hold the next one.
