Gauge 1 Model Railroad
Membership is 15 pounds a year and there is a one-time 5 pound charge for
new members. This covers not only enrollment costs, but also brings the new
member copies of the Association's wheel and track standards.
The Association's focus is predominately on British railways, but each
issue has some photos of American or European trains, as well as articles
from all over the world.

16mm Narrow Gauge
Very active organization for modellers of 2-foot gauge prototypes on gauge 0
(32mm) track. Their quarterly magazine, 16mm Today, is an
excellent publication and features a lot of live steam.
The Gauge 3 Society is an organization in the UK for those who are
interested in building locomotives to run on 2 1/2" gauge (Gauge 3)
track. They mainly support modellers with scenic railways rather
than full size passenger hauling.
Memebership dues for the Gauge 3 Society are £3 "joining fee", £15 per
annual subscription. Make cheques (PO money order, etc.) out to 'The
Gauge 3 Society" and send the treasurer:

Pacific Coast Live
This is a "non-organization organization": it has no officers, rules,
meetings or dues. As such, all that the group provides is a communication
vehicle for people to learn about small-scale live steamups in backyards and
the like. Typically, no more than one message per month is sent out and that
message gives dates and places of steamups throughout California (both north
and south) and even into parts of Nevada.
