Our highly detailed historically accurate wagons, vans and tank cars were first produced in 2002 and many thousands of these rugged finely detailed models run on tracks all over the World.
Our precision machine shop facilities allow us to apply advanced technology and innovative ideas to the design and manufacture of G1 equipment.
Peterborough is an established manufacturing centre with specialist companies able to provide services, such as small-run precision injection moulding, suited to the production requirements of our highly detailed models. Northern Fine Scale was the first company to produce purely plastic injection moulded British outline Gauge 1 rolling stock kits and still remains so to this day.
All Northern Fine Scale models are built to G1MRA (Gauge One Model Railway Association) standards for 10mm to the foot scale (1:30) Gauge 1 railway models use track with a gauge of 45mm appropriate for scale model locomotives and rolling stock of standard gauge. Northern Fine Scale models are perfectly compatible with the slightly smaller (1:32) locomotives that have gained in popularity since we started out, companies such as Aster, Accucraft and Bowande.
Gauge 1 truly is the scale where railway modelling meets model engineering, it is a realistic choice for both indoor and garden running. Although live steam traction is extremely popular, electric powered locomotives are fast gaining popularity. To this end all NFS rolling stock is supplied with plastic centred steel rim wheels running on steel axles that are compatible with 2-rail running.
Northern Fine Scale supplies parts and complete easy -to-build kits suited to the newcomer as well as the advanced builder
