What is HO scale?

HO is one of many popular scale ratios available in today’s model train market. Other popular scales include N scale, Z scale, and O scale.

The HO scale ratio is 1:87, meaning that the total length of 87 cars lined up end-to-end equals the length of one real car. HO is a mid-range size in the model train world, and it’s by far the most popular scale.

Should I choose HO scale or N scale?

While HO scale is 1:87, N scale is 1:160 — a markedly smaller size. While both sizes are popular and accessible for today’s model builders, their size choice depends on their personal preferences, available build space, and other factors. 

Perhaps most importantly, HO models take up more space than N models. If you’re looking to build an intricate HO scale tracks and environment with limited space, N scale might be the size for you. But, if you have more room to build or simply want a larger-scale set, consider HO scale.

What’s the difference between O and HO?

The acronym “HO” stands for “Half O.” That’s because the HO scale is half the size of the O scale. The sets’ considerable size difference is one of the only differences between the two scale ratios, but the popularity of HO makes parts more widely available.

Are all HO scale tracks compatible?

As long as they’re the same size and type, most HO train track products are compatible. However, read product descriptions carefully to ensure that your chosen product will fit into the rest of your build.
