..... the Association of 16mm Narrow Gauge Modellers ...... ..... anyone on here members of said society?, first I'd heard of it?
Perhaps you know Tim?

Don't know Tim but I used to be a member of 16mm association. Scale IIe in contrast to IIm.

On his way down...presuming he is driving from the north he might like this place not too far from Tours/Saumur that I have visited:Train de Rillé.

Welcome Tim (He's just joined...)
If you need any further help with trains in France please let us know.
There aren't that many garden railways in France compared to the UK but visitors are welcome here just off the A28 junction 14.
