Large scale or G scale (45 mm or 1+3⁄4 inches, G gauge) is a track gauge for model railways which is often used outdoors because of its size and durability. These garden railways use a fixed track gauge of 45 millimetres (1.75 in) to accommodate a range of rail transport modelling scales between narrow gauge (~1:13‒1:19‒1:20), metre gauge (1:22.5), Playmobil trains (~1:24), and standard gauge (~1:29–1:32).[3] These scales all use the same track and wheel profiles, allowing different scales of models to be operated together.[2]

G scale was introduced in 1968 by Ernst Paul Lehmann Patentwerk, a German firm that produced G-scale items under the brand name LGB, for Lehmann Groß Bahn—"Lehmann Big Train" in German. LGB items were intended for indoor and outdoor use; some people have come to interpret it as standing for "garden scale". (LGB is still a major manufacturer of G-scale items, though the brand was sold to Märklin in 2007.)

Most track is made of brass which can remain outside in all weathers. Track can also be obtained in less expensive aluminium as well as oxidation-resistant, though more expensive, stainless steel.

G scale versus G gauge[edit]

Main article: Rail transport modelling scales

G gauge track has a spacing of 45 mm between the railheads (tracks) (c.f. 44.45 mm for 1 gauge , but that does not determine the scale to which the models are built because, to maintain a constant track width when real-life counterparts have a variety of railroad gauges, the scale has to vary. The most common full-scale practice uses a spacing of 4 ft 8+1⁄2 in (1,435 mm) standard gauge, whereas some narrow-gauge railways (serving mines, etc.) have rails only 3 ft (914 mm) apart. Although often built with standard-sized doors, a narrow-gauge train is in most other respects smaller than its standard-gauge counterpart: its cars are generally narrower and shorter, allowing them to navigate more sharply curved and lightly built tracks.

Model trains are built to represent a real train of standard or narrow gauge. For example HO scale (1:87 or 3.5 mm to 1 foot) (and also, although inaccurately, double-O/OO at 4 mm to 1 foot) models all use 16.5 mm gauge track to represent standard gauge trains while a narrower-gauge track such as 9 mm N gauge is used to represent real narrow gauge.

G model railways depart from this and always use the same gauge with the trains instead built in different sizes depending on whether they are intended to represent standard-gauge or narrow-gauge trains. Because of this it might be more correct to speak of "G gauge" rather than "G scale" since the consistent aspect is the gauge, 45 mm (1.772 in), but the term "G scale" (or "scale IIm") is used when 1:22.5 is used.

The 45 mm gauge originated from 1 gauge or "gauge one" which was first used in Europe and Britain and used to model standard gauge trains in the scale of 1:32.

LGB were first to adopt the term G scale and used the gauge of 45 mm (1.772 in) to model 1,000 mm gauge European trains in 1:22.5 scale.

Scales that run on G gauge track[edit]

  • Gauge one: 1:32 (3/8" to the foot). Used to model standard gauge trains of 4 ft 8+1⁄2 in (1,435 mm) standard gauge gauge.
  • 1:29 scale or A scale: 1:29. First used by Aristo-Craft to model standard-gauge prototypes. Incorrect scale/gauge but proportionally similar to other popular brands of the time.
  • G scale: 1:22.5. Used to model European trains that run on 1,000 mm (3 ft 3+3⁄8 in) metre gauge track. This scale-gauge combination is called "scale IIm" according to NEM 010. The G comes from the German word groß meaning "big".
  • H scale (half inch) 1/2"-to-the-foot, or 1:24 scale. Used to model 3 ft 6 in (1,067 mm) gauge or "Cape gauge". Incorrect scale used for 3 ft (914 mm) gauge track.
  • F scale (fifteen) 15 mm-to-the-foot scale, (1:20.32). Correct scale/gauge typically used to model North American narrow gauge trains on 3 ft (914 mm) gauge track.
  • Seven eighths: 7/8"-to-the-foot scale (1:13.7). Used to model trains on 2 ft (610 mm) narrow gauge track.
  • 16 mm scale: 16 mm-to-the-foot (1:19.05). Originally intended for modelling 2-ft gauge prototype railways on 32 mm track (SM32). The models are often re-gauged to also run on 45 mm track. This scale has also been used to model 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) gauge prototype trains.

Manufacturers[edit]

  • Accucraft has five scales: Fn3 at 1:20.3, gauge 1 at 1:32, ½-inch scale at 1:24. They also build 1:29-scale North American models in live steam and electric under the AML brand, as well as British live steam and electric models in 1:19 scale (also called 16 mm) and Isle of Man live steam and electric models in 1:20.3 scale. The Isle of Man scale uses three-foot gauge track, the same width as the dominant U.S. Colorado narrow gauge.
  • American Model Builders: 1:24
  • Aristo-Craft (REA), which closed in 2013[4], made two scales: 1:29 and the "Classic" series (generally 1:24 but some models were closer to 1:32 scale).
  • Aster (C&S Mogul): 1:32, 1:30 for Japanese prototypes and 1:22.5 for European and Japanese narrow gauge.
  • Bachmann's "Big Haulers" series: 1:22.5, while their "Spectrum" series is to 1:20.3 scale and their train streetcars: 1:29
  • Buddy "L" (Keystone) (modern): 1:22.5 scale (almost identical to Bachmann, except cab is taller), older (legacy) equipment runs on rails spaced 3-1/4 inches from the pre WWII era.
  • Chicago Train Works: 1:32
  • Chucks Custom Cars: 1:22.5
  • D.A.N.: 1:22.5
  • Delton/Caledonia Express: 1:24
  • Eastern Railways: 1:32

  • Hartford Products: 1:24 (except SP boxcar and stock car, which are 1:22.5)

  • MTH Rail-King: 1:32
  • Northern Fine Scale Stock: 10 mm scale. (British-only freight stock in kit form[5])
  • Precision scale: 1:32 standard-gauge, 1:24 narrow gauge
  • PIKO: 1:29 (American cars); 1:22.5 (wood-sided passenger cars)
  • Roberts Lines (Zephyr): 1:32
  • USA Trains: 1:29 ("Ultimate" series); 1:24 ("American" series)
  • Wrightway Rolling Stock: 1:32 and 10 mm scale custom-built British North American and European passenger stock.[6]
