Within the group membership there are a number of avid modellers who continue to inspire through their efforts in designing and building a range of 16 mm scale models. These include gas, meths, and coal fired locomotives, prototypical passenger and goods rolling stock and finely detailed line side buildings.

Encouraged as always by fellow WHAGs, an increasing number have over the years entered the into the spirit of submitting their efforts into the 16 mm Association’s annual Model of The Year (MoTY) competition, and in doing so received “Highly Commended” through to “Class Winners” awards.
