The Model Railway Club : Established in 1910, the MRC is seen by many as the model railway club.
Gauge 0 Guild : The Gauge 0 Guild was formed in 1956 to provide support for modellers who work in the scale of 7mm to 1ft.
The Association of Larger Scale Railway Modellers : The ALSRM is open to anyone interested in model railways in the larger scales S, O, 1, G and upwards.

EM Gauge Society : EM was the first serious attempt at finescale 4mm scale modelling and still has a large following.
proto87 : The main interest group for P87 modellers working in the finescale version of HO. You’ll need to be fluent in French to use this site to its best advantage!
