We organise visits to narrow gauge and miniature railways throughout the year for the benefit of members. These are mostly private visits, by special arrangement with the owners or operators of the railway.

We often get to see behind the scenes of the railway, such as the sheds and the workshops – areas normally off-limits where the railway is not normally open to the general public. For this reason, we restrict our visits to members only. If you are not a member and would like to come along on one of our visits, please join the Society first before you complete a booking form – see our MEMBERSHIP page. 

To join us on a visit, please:

1)      Download and complete the booking form which is part of the links below. Note that we require the names and

         addresses of everyone in your party and that (except where stated) everyone should be a member (family members

         can be Associate members).

         The booking form can either be completed by hand or electronically.

2)      Either mail the completed form to the address given on the form, or save/scan and email to visitsofficer@ngrs.org.

3)      Payment should be made either
