Keeping the spirit of the past alive for tomorrow and looking to the future
The National 2½" Gauge Association is a not-for-profit organisation
Clicking on the name will take you to a page giving the drawings and castings available for that design. Note that this is a 'work in progress' and it will take time to cover all the designs listed.
Group A1 - N25GA Drawings
Group A2 - N25GA Drawings
Group B - Bonds Drawings
The Bonds designs share many common parts and so drawings for any particular design will consist of a few sheets devoted purely to that design and the rest will be the 'Standard Parts' drawings. We have a lot of these but unfortunately not all of them.
Please note that some of the boiler designs will not be compliant with modern boiler regulations and will need to be modified to bring them up to date.
If you require more than one set of the Bonds drawings please contact the drawings officer before ordering as many of the drawings may be duplicated. We can also supply individual sheets.
The Association do not supply these but they can be obtained direct from Reeves (2000). They are listed under 'Miscellaneous Drawings'.
Reeves also sell the drawings for Elaine and Sir Ironside by Don Young and some castings (but not wheels)
Stirling Single (17/32":1ft scale) £2-63
Drawings are normally sent folded to approximately A4 size. They can be sent rolled in a tube if you don't want them folded but there will be an extra charge for this as the postage is higher due to the size of the tube.

We have many original drawings in our archives for 2½" Gauge locomotives by Henry Greenly. These are usually just a single sheet which give general arrangement drawings for the locomotive and it's tender if appropriate. We also have many for Gauge 1 and O Gauge locomotives.
Please contact the Drawings Officer if there is anything that you are looking for.
Julius has produced quite a few designs for 2½" Gauge/Gauge 3 and these are available as a free pdf download. They are not intended for 'passenger hauling' but may be of interest. Please note that the drawings are for personal use only.
