5.5mm Association

The ideal narrow gauge scale

How to Join

The Association exists to aid those modelling in and around 1/55th scale. Although the bulk of members model 2' or 3' gauge prototypes there is room for everyone; one of our previous members has even built a standard gauge tram in 5.5mm scale.

This page gives details about what is available for members and information on how to go about joining the 5.5mm Association.

55 News

Association members keep in touch through the quarterly newsletter '55 News', which contains articles, hints and tips, advance notice of exhibitions featuring 5.5mm scale layouts, and details of new products.

Have a look at a sample copy of 55 News.


In addition, members get discounts on Association products and can now also receive discounts from a growing number of model suppliers.


The Annual General Meeting (usually held in September) is open to all members of the Association and is a great opportunity to meet up with fellow 5.5mm modellers.


The Association often has a stand at model railway exhibitions around the country and this is another opportunity to meet up with other members and also to introduce friends to "the ideal narrow gauge scale"!
