About the EM Gauge Society

The EM Gauge Society is a UK-based international society created to promote and support railway modellers working to a scale of 4mm/ft with a track gauge of 18.2mm. We also support modellers working to the more demanding Protofour (P4) standards, with a track gauge of 18.83mm.

The Society encourages the use of fine scale standards and provides support and resources to promote this.

Within this website you will find more information about EM Gauge, the benefits of becoming a member, how to join, and how to get involved with one of the many Area Groups.

The web site also contains information about the EM track standards, and there’s a resource section with more general information.

Becoming a member of the Society gives you access to the EMGS on-line store, additional resources in the Members Area, a copy of the technical manual (on CD), plus access to back copies of the Newsletter.

Society events

Each year the Society runs a number of events. Currently we have the major exhibition at Bracknell, with a second in Manchester. We are always striving to improve and aim to make them some of the best shows in the country.

As well as layouts, each exhibition includes lectures, demonstrations and specialist trade stands.

The annual Chris Kedgley Memorial Skills Day is held in the spring, and is the place to see and quiz experts in the many fields of railway modelling.

All members are invited to attend the AGM. Whilst on a smaller scale, it is a useful place to shop, see what’s happening in the Society and have your say on how things are run. The Society’s annual modelling competition takes place at the AGM.
