Welcome to the web site of the M5 M50 NGM
Our meetings have resumed and from our own perspective, despite COVID-19 restrictions being lifted, we will continue to run the evening in as safe way as possible.
The next meeting will be on Monday 22nd November 2021 starting at 7.30pm. Please remember that we do not have a meeting in December.
Our meetings in 2022 will be on the 4th Monday of each month. The dates are
The following measures have been adopted for our meetings until further notice while we try to find the optimum way forward:
- No charge so no money has to be handled.
- Paper plates, cups and disposable cutlery or bring your own mug.
- Biscuits and individual cakes so that cakes don’t have to be handled for cutting up.
- Hand sanitiser at the serving hatch, wipes to clean surfaces and table tops.
- Attendees to wear masks as much as possible.
We hope these measures will give members the confidence they need to attend and we are happy to discuss your views on what you would like to do for future meetings.
As we hadn’t been able to meet since February 2020 we have been producing a monthly newsletter to help us stay in touch. With the resumption of our face-to-face meetings the September 2021 newsletter was the last one.
All the newsletters are available here:
Bonus Christmas Issue! M5-M50-NGM-News-December-2020
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.
