Following the local lockdown in Merseyside,
most of Lancashire and parts of Cheshire,
along with the raising of the national alert level,
the clubrooms are now closed again until further notice.
The West Lancashire '0' Gauge Group was formed in 1956, at about the same time as the Gauge '0' Guild, to which it is affiliated. The Guild was formed to promote a scale which was declining due to the development of smaller scales, more suitable for building layouts in small modern houses.
The West Lancs. Group was set up as a one-scale society in order to concentrate and capitalise on the particular advantages of Gauge 0. After 50 years, the Group had to move out of its original premises in Crosby owing to their demolition for redevelopment and now has excellent accommodation in Bootle.
It currently has a Test Track, an end-to-end branch line, with extension under construction and a continuous-run main-line layout with Motive Power Depot and single-track branch.
A quarterly magazine for members is published in full colour. The electronic file is in Portable Document Format (.PDF) and is sent to members' nominated e-mail addresses.
The West Lancashire 0 Gauge Group
has no connection with any traders mentioned on this website
other than that of a satisfied customer.
