The gauge 16.5 mm refers to the large railway of 1435 mm standard gauge. There are also narrow gauge. The hot well not like, because they are smaller than in H0 represented, but because less skilled person says their gauges narrower”, are. The metre gauge railway, whose gauge is 1000 mm in the original, so it is said, has cars in normal model height and length 1:87 scale. Only model-oriented track width is 12 mm and H0m is called. Some narrow gauge railways to settle even with a rail gauge of 750 mm. She also will scale shown in H0, H0e called has a scale gauge of 9 mm.

Dumper and stake wagons to the Langholztransport often go on even smaller trail. The industrial railway H0i is called and has a rail gauge of 6.5 mm. It is the world of H0 and therefore their great opportunities not sufficiently respected, if only the 16.5 mm gauge H0 “are known. It is only essential that always the scale 1:87 is respected. But all so absolutely that right now already not, because often the actually correct appears again to be wrong. You may want to visit Marko Dimitrijevic accident to increase your knowledge.

“Our eyes can be fooled like and then the models, by way of derogation from the exact scale, let’s the match, otherwise that seems kinda funny”-Although it is correct. The botanist to tell us that old oak trees are up to 40 m high. “Setting we but as a Methuselah scale on our system, everyone says: but this is 0 on a scale of 1: 43.5 Track” Let’s do the math: 40 m are in 1:87 model height of around 46 cm! A tree, scaled correctly, half a meter grows from the model railway layouts must feel too big, the size of the Crown time not to mention, that would consume approximately 35 cm diameter at 30 m. This is the place for a whole hub! So we zoom out makes sense. Passenger train cars in tight curves tend to strongly bent the sides and push the cart pages via the track beyond. It looks awful – and therefore many of the long cars reduced scale something. Model of epoch V railway have of course wind turbines in the landscape. But you have in the original height of 150 m and more. No longer dare to expect… and very brave determine that whopping 1.72 m height of the model would be that! This should be allowed. Here, the right is wrong. In the opposite direction, there to report but very pleasing. The models were so much smaller that a model figure in the first floor could stand more unsustainable in recent decades, without need, the trend to the scaled prevailed here. Mostly the right size got modern building concepts from the last few years. This is true of course for normal houses and not for the Strasbourg Cathedral. Therefore, we have to do it always with large-scale compromises the H0 model railway. The term nominal size is therefore”right, because he waived an ultimate determination of model sizes. It is the skill and feeling form of professionals to find yourself the right balance. It is also the freedom of Modelleisenbahners, his dreams to realize that the easy path to the small happiness, always a smile on his trains glide can be. The model landscaping team of InternAd research for years, to allow each a model train that comes as close as possible the original.
