MERG (Model Electronic Railway Group) is an international, UK based group promoting interest in the application of electronics (including computers) to all aspects of railway modelling.

Founded in 1967, the Group’s aim is to actively promote and advance the use of electronic and computer technology for model railway operation. Railway modelling, one of the world’s most popular hobbies is ideally suited to take advantage of these technologies, and the application of electronics and computers can be used to good effect to add enhanced features and realism to model railway operation.
