i need help with scale models?

i need help with the different scales of trains
i know there are alot but i dont know them all or the sizes
so can someone please help me out
thanks

I'll start with the smallest and move up. Z scale is the smallest and the newest. It's 1/220 scale which means one foot equals 220 feet. The next is N scale which is 1/160. The next is HO which is 1/87. S scale is 1/64 O scale is 1/48, On30 is the small as O scale but the trains run on HO track. This is narrow guage with rail spaced 30 scale inches apart. G scale which is actually several scales that run on the same track. 1/32, 1/29 1/22.5, 1/24, and 1/20.3. G scale is generally used for outdoor layouts. G scale has yet to fully standardize but most of the different scales are compatible if the slight size differences dont bother you. I model 1/20.3 rolling stock and usually use figures and vehicles that are 1/24 scale.

Each scale has its advantages and disadvantages. Z scale's small size allows you to build layout in very small places like an end table or even a brief case. N scale is also very small and allows large layouts in a small space. N scale is more established than Z scale and more items are available. A fair size layout can be built on a door. These two scale are good if you want to model a railroad.
HO scale is the most popular and HO scale items are found all over the place. This is a good scale for modeling a train

S scale is based on trains that were made by the A C Gilbert co in the 50's and 60's. It's made a come back in the last few years, many Matchbox and Hotwheel cars scale out to 1/64 th scale. O scale has also made a comeback. The larger size of this scale make incredibly detailed models possible. Lionel train fall in this category also.

G scale is rather large for indoor layouts although there are some. This scale is mostly used for out door layouts. While the large scale make detailing possible most models are not since they are used outside.
