Welcome to the
Nn3 Home Page
Nn3 is narrow gauge in N scale, primarily, but not exclusively using Z scale standards to represent 3ft narrow gauge railroads.While it's obviously a minority interest, it's followed by an increasing number of modellers worldwide.

The focal point for much of this activity is the Nn3 mailing list on Yahoo, where modellers congregate in cyberspace to discuss modelling topics and plan Nn3 events.  The Nn3 Handbook is a joint project by members of the Nn3 mailing list
