Conceived in response to a long-standing demand by members that the Society should have its own exhibition layout, the project was initiated at the end of 2015, following an invitation I put forward (through www.g3forum.org.uk) to members to join a team to build a layout to be ready for public display in 2017.

The first challenge was to raise funds and, apart from some generous donations by just a few members, the initial response was disappointing. The AGM in February raised around one-half of the hoped-for amount and fund-raising initiatives continued, with our initial target being reached in late September..

You can help in a number of ways:-

Donating cash or materials (download form here).

Purchasing a specially-commissioned coffee mug (price 8.75GBP includes postage to UK postcodes..... Reduced postage for 2 and more items) email coffee@monktonpriors.gauge3.co.uk for details.

Volunteering to help with construction and exhibition appearances.

Please support your Society in this project which is to designed to raise awareness of Gauge 3 in the wider World and consequently encourage an enlarged membership of The Gauge 3 Society, which is necessary to ensure the financial viability of the Society in the years to come.

It is anticipated that some components of the layout will serve a “dual-purpose” in that they will be capable of being deployed as part of a portable track for use at regional get-togethers where no permanent track exists.
