O Gauge T/Track

Details of the next test track open day will appear here 


Location: St Mellons Golf Club.

St Mellons,  Cardiff,  CF3 2XS

Entrance is free. 

This is open to anyone with an interest in O Gauge Modelling, you do not have to be a member of the Gauge O Guild, ALSRM or NMRS to come along.

The test track is a dual circuit approx 30' x16'. Trackwork is Peco, hence only suitable for O Finescale wheel standards (ie Slaters, Heljan, Finescale Brass etc). Operation is by DC or DCC. Sorry no steam/third rail/coarse scale.

Items of stock are brought to the open day at the owners risk, we will not be taking out additional insurance (cost prohibitive).

Our aim is to provide a friendly running session where you can run your loco (we will provide coaching stock). Beginners are most welcome, if you are contemplating switching to O, have a loco giving issues then come along. There will be a number of people there who will be willing to help with advice.

A bar is available also serving tea and coffee, and bar snacks are available too, or you could bring your own packed lunch.

Donations toward costs most welcome.

Dates for 2015 are - TBA
