G scale model trains are pretty big. The ‘G’ stands for garden because they are mainly used out of doors and they have an aspect ratio 1:24. G scale trains run on a 1 gauge track and they are incredibly fun to look at and play with because of their stout and heavy looks. Many hobbyists landscape their G scale trains with shrubs, bushes and miniature plants while others get incredibly creative and design cities with little people and cars to enhance the scenery of their train as it passes by.
While G scale trains are popular among hard core hobbyists, HO model train layouts are incredibly popular as well. The popularity of the HO trains has come about for the reason that people don't need a lot of space to enjoy a well detailed model railroad. They are mainly used in doors and they don’t cost as much as the bigger models.
“I think you guys are awesome. My son has gotten into model trains with a friend at school and he started asking me questions and wanting me to buy him a model train set. I didn’t know anything about model trains or even where to begin looking for information until I found your website. I got up to speed quick and now me and my son both enjoy our model trains and we sometimes spend entire weekends on them!” – Joshua Harvey
The HO model trains are great size for children to be able to handle, but they are not so small that people have to struggle to see all the intricate details and designs. HO model railways can be easily created on a 4 foot x 8 foot table which is why they are considered the best option for indoor play.
