Narrow Gauge Efficiency Trials

What is it?

Basically it is a social weekend with a difference where like-minded model engineers come together to run their locos, the difference being the challenge set.

The Challenge

The challenge is to run your narrow gauge locomotives for 30 minutes, pulling fully laden slate wagons, at a maximum speed of 5mph using a minimal amount of coal. To add to the fun all the wagons will be chain and hook coupled as in real life! Not an easy task but a lot of fun, for competitors and spectators alike.

When is it?

The next event, which will be the 20th, will be held on May 20th/21st 2017 at the track of Oswestry and North Shropshire MES, as was the first event back in 1998.
Why not come along and join us. All will be welcome – participants and spectators alike.

If you wish to participate please fill in our online application form or download one and post it to us. You can also contact our secretary by phone or e-mail.
