I recently acquired an old train set but don't know what scale it is. Any ideas on how to determine the scale.
Thanks, Steve

Someone should be able to help if you take a picture of it and put it on a web site and direct us there with a link in this group. DO NOT POST THE PICTURE HERE.

Measure the distance between the rails (or wheels).
Most of the tracks around the world is 1435mm i scale 1:1.
H0 is 16 mm, n is 9mm 0 is 32 mm
