Welcome to Our New Rail Modeler Train Store!

Collection: N Scale

N scale is about 1/2 the size of HO scale with a ratio of about 1:160, or 1/160 the size of the prototype.  The main advantage of N scale is that you can have a bigger empire in a smaller space.  Another way of looking at it is if your computer screen has a higher resolution, you can fit a lot more windows and icons into the space on your desktop. It's just that those icons are smaller than they would be at a lower resolution. 

So the trains are smaller but you can have more of them on your layout.  The tracks are smaller so you can create more loops, tunnels, bridges and "bigger" train-yards.  The buildings are smaller so you can have more of them and more industries.  You can also have a lot more scenery - mountains, forests, rivers, cliffs, gorges, etc.  You can just have a lot more going on in a smaller area.

There are 2 problems with N scale:  The first is that the parts are small and guys with big hands sometimes have trouble with them.  The 2nd problem,  which isn't really much of a problem any more, is that there aren't quite as many products available in the marketplace for N scale as there is for HO. 

Be careful before you buy that you get the right scale. The filtering process used to bring these items into these collections is not perfect and it may contain some products from other scales.
