Lgb Train

If I have a g scale model lgb train, can i put a different scale on the track?

I want to know if I can run a different scale, and it still work. G scales seam to be the most expensive and I wanna try to get things cheaper.

This is one of the more confusing things about G gauge. LGB builds their equipment to be 1/24 scale which when used on G gauge track is European narrow gauge. Bachmann has made some of the their equipment to be 1/20.3 which is US narrow Gauge. Other manufacturers like MTH and USA Trains build their G gauge equipment to be 1/32 scale which results in standard gauge trains. It all runs on the same track but the cars while they can be run together may represent all different scales on the same G Gauge track. It's not unusual to see the different scales mixed together.
One thing I learned modeling in this scale was that it is the most expensive scale. I found that I could better use my hobby dollar by buying tools instead of buildings and rolling stock and I started making my own stuff.

I scaled most of my stuff at 1/24 because it's about mid way between all the scales that use G gauge track and it's easy to convert with a standard ruler 1/2 inch equals 1 scale foot.

G scale 45 Tonner Operating 038

The engine is 1/20.3, the scratchbuilt cars are 1/24 scale.

G Scale Station 001

This is a station I built to go on someone elses layout.

Cranberry Iron & Coal Company Store

This is a general store that I built roughly 1/24 scale.

Ham's Jacksonville FL Drawbridge

These are Aristocraft locomotive and cars on a layout I built for a restuarant in Jacksonville Fl.
The scale on these is 1/29

Circus Train Wreck

Here's a mix of 1/24 scale vehicles and 1/20.3 train equipment. The figures are various scales mostly in the 1/24 to 1/20.3 scale.

Good luck and hope this helps.
