N-scale has been around in British railway modelling for a long time, yet it still represents a much smaller portion of the modelling fraternity than does OO scale.
The downside of N-scale is of course, that it is more fiddly. As fingers lose their nimbleness and eyes tend to require lenses of some kind, the small parts of N-scale become more difficult for many. That said, the obvious big advantage to N-scale is how much more railway you can fit in the space available. You can create a railway of more scale-length trains, and/or larger towns, countryside, etc.
Today's models, like it's larger scale counterparts, are much improved over years past, with better running, finer detailing and of course, a much wider choice of models are available, and control options include DCC, although a caveat here is that it is difficult to fit decoders into many of the smaller locos.
We carry a range of N-scale products from Graham Farish, Dapol, DJ Models, Peco, Metcalfe, Kestrel, Ratio and Oxford Diecast, such that you can start and complete an N-scale model railway.
