Who We Are
N Scale Vehicle Association was formed to promote the modeling and collecting of 1:160 scale model vehicles. N scale is a model railroading scale that uses 9 mm gauge track, which is commonly referred to as N gauge. In North America and most of Europe, 1:160 scale model railroad equipment that represents standard gauge prototype equipment operates on 9 mm gauge track.
The first public activity of the N Scale Vehicle Association was the facilitation of the voting for the N Scale Vehicle of the Year Awards at the National N Scale Convention* held in San Diego, California. In the years following the 2005 convention in San Diego, voting for the N Scale Vehicle of the Year Awards has been an annual event at the conventions, and has grown in popularity with the manufacturers, as well as the modelers of N scale model railroad equipment.
