WHAT ARE HO (OR H0) SCALES?
HO or H0 is a rail transport modelling scale using a 1:87 scale (0.137 inches to 1 foot). The name HO comes from 1:87 scale being half that of O scale, which was previously the smallest of the series of older and larger 0, 1, 2 and 3 gauges introduced by Märklin around 1900. The HO (or H0) is the most popular scale of model railway in the world. The rails are spaced 0.649 inches (16.5 mm) apart for modelling o.056 inches (1,435 mm) standard gauge tracks and trains in HO.
