Welcome to the Scalefour Society

The Scalefour Society is one of the foremost and friendliest groups for finescale modellers. It welcomes all those seeking to improve their modelling, particularly using scale wheels and track.

Scalefour is simply the concept of railway modelling to the most realistic standards at a scale of 4mm to the foot. The standard track gauge used is prototypically set as 18.83mm rather than the 16.50mm of OO, or the 18.20mm of EM. A consistent set of track and wheel dimensions, together with a range of vehicle suspension systems, endures reliable performance and an excellent visual appearance.

We offer members a large, lively and helpful web-forum, a comprehensive modelling handbook, a quality journal five times a year, and access to the Members' Stores.


The Society is on YouTube. Please visit our YouTube Channel for more content.

The Scalefour Society caters for the needs of railway modellers working to the scale of 4mm/ft (1:76.2), the most popular of the British model railway scales. It promotes and encourages the use of effective modelling techniques and fine scale standards among all 4mm railway modellers with a particular emphasis on the use of scale wheels and track.

This web site contains a great deal of information for all modellers and is a showcase for the Society. It also contains our Forum, where you can read about many aspects of finescale modelling.

Society Members have the benefits of exclusive access to further resources within the site. Membership gives you the Scalefour Digests; a full library of back copies of Scalefour News that can be downloaded; additional technical reference material and much more.
