About Us

Narrow Gauge and Industrial is  the home of the NG&IRM Review and RCL Publications.

NG&IRM Review

Narrow Gauge and Industrial Railway Modelling Review was started by Roy C Link over 25 years ago. It is a quarterly journal featuring the very best of finescale narrow gauge and industrial modelling.

RCL Publications

RCL Publications started in 2000 with the book 'Two Foot Rails to the Ironstone - written by Paul Ingham. Piloting a fresh new format for railway books, the clean layout, detailed drawings, maps and the inclusion of much more than mere 'nuts and bolts' has proved a great success. Other titles have followed - see our list of books,  and more are in preparation.

Recent History

As many will know, a few years ago Greystar took over the production and editorship of the Review with Roy C Link remaining as the production editor. Greystar provided on-line subscriptions and managed the distribution of the Review as well as RCL books.

Since Bob Barlow's sad and untimely death Greystar has closed and ownership of the Review has reverted back to Roy.

Establishing the state of subscriptions etc. proved to be a traumatic process and required new processes and facilities to be put in place from scratch. A key aspect of this is the introduction of shared facilities and a small group of people who will act as 'Friends of the REVIEW' who will support Roy in the general management, but more importantly capable of stepping in and maintaining communications with subscribers and customers if Roy is unable to continue.
