S scale is virtually extinct scale in Australia. (That is apart from Sn3½ narrow gauge models which use HO track to represent 3’6″ railways).
The scale is 1:64 and the gauge 22.22mm (an entirely non-metric scale). S stands for Seven, Sixteenths and Sixty-four. Numbers which are commonly used in this scale when not trying to use metric equivalents. S scale has a larger following in the USA where it was made by American Flyer and in the UK there is also some support for this scale.
Sn3½ is a scale/gauge combination derived from S scale to represent narrow gauge 3 ft 6 in (1,067 mm) track by using 16.5 mm (0.65 in) gauge track (the same as HO gauge). The scale is 1:64.
Sn3½ is popular in South Africa, Australia (particularly Western Australia, Queensland, Tasmania and New Zealand.
