GRS was started in 1982 by Michael Adamson from a passionate hobby which has grown into an international business. The business started off in G Scale (1:22.5 scale, 45mm gauge) and 16mm narrow gauge (1.19 scale, 32mm gauge) and has steadily grown into the largest supplier in the UK. Over the last 20 years Michael’s son, Matthew Adamson, has worked alongside his father sharing his passion for the business and the range has been extended to include Gauge 3 (1:22.5 scale, 64mm gauge), Gauge 1 (1:32 scale, 45mm gauge). Now Matthew has taken over the running of the business and has introduced ready to run 5 inch and 7.25 inch coal fired ride on locomotives – which can be seen in the showroom. We now have over 7,000 products on offer – all of which can be seen on this website!
