Mill Lane Sidings

Site Map.

Mill Lane Sidings is run by modellers for modellers on a not-for-profit basis – the idea is to innovate and exploit new technology and design in UK N Gauge, just to see what can be done! If I make any money, I plough it straight back into the next project.


It is mainly the work of myself, Richard Bardsley.  It’s just part of my hobby and it has to fit in alongside family and the ‘day job’.


I have been heavily involved with the N Gauge Society for 25 years and I am currently the Chairman. I joined the Society in 1988 and first volunteered in the early 1990s as one of the sub-shop keepers. In 2000 I joined the committee as Journal Manager and held this post and that of Editor of the Journal for 13 years. I've been coordinator of the Annual Model Making Competition as well as photographing the entries; the project manager for a number of Society wagon kit projects; project manager for the first Society RTR project, the Stove R; designed and created publicity such as leaflets and adverts.


I have written a number of books on railway modelling and over 40 articles in the model railway press, mainly Railway Modeller.
