Welcome to the official website of the Gauge '3' Society. We are here to support and promote modelling in Gauge '3': Standard gauge railways running on 2½ inch gauge track.


Amongst our membership we have collectors of vintage trains, those with high pressure live steam locomotives, garden railways with continuous circuits for fast steam running and those with smaller railways using 2-rail, battery or radio control. All are equally welcome in the Gauge 3 Society.

What's New? - G3 Events & News

Notice to Gauge '3' Society Members - Our new Membership Messaging Service (MMS) is now operational and Members are already using it to privately message other Members. If you did not receive an emailed "invitation" to join MMS - then please contact the G3S Webmaster by using the Contacts page.  Please state your full name and membership number when doing so. 
The first batch of 100HP 0-4-0 VBGT Sentinel engines in Gauge '3' has now been sold.  Another batch of RTR battery electric, radio controlled, Gauge '3' shunting engines are planned after the current crisis - price to be announced.  See here for more Loco details
We are very sorry to announce, that owing to the Corona Virus emergency all Society GTGs scheduled for 2020 have been cancelled until further notice. We also expect most Railway Modelling Shows to be cancelled so unfortunately, no Gauge '3' Exhibition Layouts are likely to be shown in the near future.
Sorry if you couldn't get to our 2020 AGM & Show (we'll have some photos & news soon) but here are some photos from our previous 2019 Show
