Welcome to the O Scale Kings
The purpose of this site is to promote the further development of O scale, 2-rail model railroading and provide a list of resources for the O Scale modeler. Briefly, O Scale is the modeling of trains, structures, and people at the scale of one-quarter inch equals one foot (1/4″ = 1′). This scale can also be expressed using a ratio of 1:48.
In comparing this scale to others the following are rough relationships:
- O Scale is twice as big as HO and four times as big as N.
- S Scale falls about half way in size between O and HO.
- G Scale is 1.5 times the size of O
This site is a “work in progress.” It contains links to O scale resources, manufacturers, events, conventions, meets, shows, etc. Keeping these links up to date requires the help and effort of every OSK member. So, please send updated info to Web Master.
Membership in the O Scale Kings is open to anyone. Dues are currently $10 per year. Send a check or money order (DO NOT SEND CASH!) to:
