If you are the kind of person who enjoys spending time going through printed catalogs, they are available in S-scale.

Scenery Unlimited produces a Walthers-style catalog that lists almost all S-scale products available (at least through distributors and dealers). It covers all flavors of S-scale modeling. You can only order it via fax or by calling in with your credit card.

Lionel's latest catalog is available online. Authorized dealers may have printed copies in their stores.

MTH's catalog is also available online. Through their web site you may order a printed copy. Authorized dealers may have printed copies in their stores. The catalog is dated 2013, because they don't release a new catalog until all items covered in that catalog have actually been released. The last items (the F3 and turnouts) were released in the Summer of 2017, so we are expecting a new catalog in early 2018.

American Models has their products listing on their web site, but they also make a printed catalog available. It is $7 (see the "Add this to my cart" button on their home page).

B.T.S. has their catalog available online, which you can order in printed format for $8. It lists all their kits and their detailing parts.


S-scale Magazines

This is a complete listing of print and online magazines that cover S-scale solely or routinely.

Magazine Indexes On This Web Site

We have started an article index for all of the NASG's Dispatch issues. You can find that in the Articles Index section of the Dispatch's Back Issues page.

The indexes below only list S-scale articles (all flavors) in non-S magazines. If you are new to S and you happen to subscribe to any of these magazines, this would be a great way to learn more about what modeling in this scale is about.

Magazine Indexes On Other Web Sites

These are external links to listings maintained by this web site's webmaster, but on his own, personal, web site. These are by no means an exhaustive listing, but every little bit helps.
