Super Sunday for N Gauge modellers

N-gauge modellers have a Super-Sunday in which to celebrate their passion, when Wonderful World of Trains & Planes joins forces with the West Midlands N Gauge Club to host a special day dedicated to N gauge layouts.

Almost 30 layouts will be running today, Sunday 19th October, from 10am to 5pm, with several UK-themed layouts, as well as some depicting Germany, France and the USA.

The modellers of each layout will be on hand to operate and discuss, but this is a unique opportunity to get all these N gauge layouts together which enthusiasts and casual visitors will not want to miss.

Visitors have full access to the three floors of layouts at WWTP, a permanent venue that opened in June just off St Paul's Square in Birmingham. These include layouts featuring Canada, France, Germany and UK, together with others in the construction stage. Other layouts and presentations feature the Royal Train and the Orient Express.

Professional flight  simulators and a four-car race track are also part of the overall experience. There is also a coffee shop and retail store.

Wonderful World of Trains & Planes is the country's newest and brightest model venue - a wonderful experience for all the family.

The West Midlands N Gauge Club was formed in 1995. It was an area group of the N Gauge Society and is based in Tipton with members from all over the W Midlands. It meets in the afternoons of the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month. It has a 20ft exhibition layout named "Waterstock," a 6 ft exhibition layout named "Tipton Hills," and a layout under construction based on Water Orton and named "Whartson Hall." Most members also have their own layouts, many of which can be seen at exhibitions or at the WWTP Super Sunday event. More information at

On-street parking is free on Sundays in the area and there is also a 1000-space car park at the end of the road which charges £3 for the entire day.
