Trainz.com lists its collection as S Scale trains and organizes them into categories based on era and train type. For example, S Scale steam locomotives are in a separate section from diesel locomotives, while the selection of tracks includes both modern pieces in addition to post-war tracks. The site also includes a quick-reference size chart in its header, which allows users to access the S Scale train sets from anywhere within the site. Similarly, Lionel.com features organizational sections based on size, although it refers to the pieces as S Gauge instead of S Scale. Each component of a complete train set features its own section, which means S Gauge tracks exist under the main Track category, while S Gauge freight cars exist under the Freight Cars category.

Amazon.com features a less comprehensive organizational system, as it is features a wide selection of products beyond trains. Users are still able to locate S Scale trains and accessories by either conducting a keyword search or by navigating to the Trains and Hobbies section and choosing the appropriate sizing.
