Metcalfe Models & Toys Ltd is a first choice brand for many model railway enthusiasts. From the very first brainwave right up to the present, the company has gone from strength to strength producing card kits to a quality that has never been compromised.
For ease of design Metcalfe actually work to the ratio of 4mm to 1 Foot which is 1:76. Metcalfe design the models with the different OO track styles in mind, and the railway buildings are designed to accommodate the variants. The scenery buildings are designed to look right on a layout and while close to OO scale they may vary slightly. For example if Metcalfe designed a church or a mill true to scale it would look huge on a layout and would take up far too much space.
