The Society

G Scale steam Loco crossing bridge

The G Scale Society was founded in 1987 and now has over 1400 members in the UK and overseas. It caters for all modellers working in G Scale and has a liberal approach, believing that enjoyment is just as important as rivet-counting, but with no bias in either direction.
