Model railroading, also known as railway models or model trains, is the hobby of collecting and crafting miniature replicas of real or imagined trains and railways.
Scales of Model Trains
Model scale trains come in a variety of scales, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The most common scales are O, HO, and N.
O Scale is 1/48th the size of real life trains and is popular for its ability to create realistic details.
HO Scale is the most popular scale for model trains. It is 1/87th the size of real life trains and is considered to be a good balance between detail and affordability.
N Scale is 1/160th the size of real life trains and is popular for its small size, making it ideal for tight spaces.
