HO Scale Trains

June 29, 2013

H0 was produced to satisfy these aims. With this new scale, a track width of 16.5 mm is built to represent prototypical standard gauge track, along with a model scale of just 1:87 was selected. By as soon as 1922 the firm Bing in Nuremberg, Germany, has been marketing a “tabletop railway” for quite some time. This came on the elevated, quasi-ballasted track having a gauge of 16.5 mm that was referred to in those days either as 00 or H0. The trains initially were built with a clockwork drive, but from 1924 were driven electric. Accessory producers, for example Kibri, promoted structures within the corresponding scale. In the 1935 Leipzig Spring Fair, an electrical tabletop railway, Trix Express, was displayed to some gauge referred to as Half Nought Gauge, that was then abbreviated as Gauge 00 (“nought-nought”).
