DOGA - 00 Gauge Association
We are THE organisation catering for both new and veteran railway modellers working in 4mm scale using a track gauge of 16.5mm - the most common for models of UK prototypes. To find out more about us, visit the About DOGA section. Perhaps you would like to read our magazine "The Journal" or purchase some of the products we have developed to help railway modellers working in 4mm scale using a track gauge of 16.5mm at the DOGA Shop. If you'd like to meet us, check out our newly updated Events listing on our web site.
MERG Model Electronic Railway Group
MERG (Model Electronic Railway Group) is an international, UKbased group promoting interest in the application of electronics (including computers) to all aspects of railway modelling. The Group provides opportunities for adults (18 and over) to broaden their knowledge and share information and ideas. We do this through a regular journal and many Technical Bulletins published by members for members, by our forum and email discussion groups and by a programme of meetings and visits. We also provide tutors for weekend courses held at Missenden Abbey. Where appropriate kits for construction of member-designed equipment are made available to members, currently these include Computer Control, Layout Control and DCC equipment. Examples of some of these kits are shown on our demonstration stand as built by members of the South Wales Area Group. Membership details are also available on the stand.
