Model Railways

FGO Layouts

"Gauge" and "scale" are used interchangeably in the hobby; however, this is not correct terminology. "Scale" refers to the size of the model but "gauge" is the width between the insides of the track rails.  For the sake of clarity I refer to the layouts with their scale names, not gauges.

OO Layout

Originally called the Train Room Layout, it is OO scale 1:76, gauge 16.50mm. This layout, unlike the G and Z doesn't have running water, although there is a possibility that I might change this at a later date.

HOe Layout

An HOe scale 1:87, gauge 9mm layout that is basically a pleasure park. This HO, narrow gauge railway is an add on to my OO layout. 

N Layout

In the UK, N is 1:148 scale but in the USA, Europe and Japan the scale used there is usually 1:160, but they all use  9mm gauge track. 

Z Layout

The smallest of my layouts has a scale of 1:220 and a gauge of 6.50mm, with a stream with running water flowing down from the mountains in a never ending cycle.

Garden Railway

G, scale 1:22.50, gauge 45mm, this is my garden layout with a canal and locks, featuring running water. There is also a pond in the garden but this has its own section.

General Topics

This section is for all other scales and gauges and also those articles that are not scale specific.  Including 'My Train In A Tin' video.
