Gauge One is uniquely suitable for working models of railways because it sits at the crossroads between Model Engineering and Railway Modelling.

Powerful live steam locomotives mingle with electric, diesel and occasionally clockwork traction. Stock comes from sophisticated factories, comprehensive workshops and kitchen tables alike. While it is large enough to include every last nut, bolt and rivet for those who care, from normal viewing distances their absence goes unnoticed.

Gauge One has a bulk and presence that makes the smallest train impressive. It is as comfortable in an exhibition hall as in a scenic landscape, and a slogging goods train can be as exhilarating as a speeding express.

Gauge 1 track is 45mm or 1 3/4 inches between the rails.

Scale One represents standard gauge on Gauge 1 track:
- 1/32 scale represents 1435mm standard gauge worldwide.
- 10mm scale often represents British standard gauge
