Identify this scale?

  1. This is the plastic, Bachmann train setup my parents have run around their tree for a decade.

    the tracks are 1-1/8" gauge. Since its Bachmann, it must be a relatively standard scale.

    I think it is the same size track as "G".
  4. No, it isn't

    G is 1-3/4" gauge, this is 1-1/8" Gauge

    its about 1:50 scale for standard gauge
    its about 1:32 scale if its 3-foot Narrow Gauge

    It's no scale, it's a battery powered toy. USA O scale is 1/48.

    Indeed--just because it's Bachmann does not mean it isn't a no-particular-scale toy. The plastic track and cheesy vacu-form Christmas-tree-base mountain are kind of a giveaway in that respect.

    My wife has one almost just like yours. Our track is 1 1/8" also. this one has smoke and light with 5 cars and a sound train station. This one was made in China for ABC Distributing Inc., Miami, Fl.

  11. yours looks much fancier than my parents' set, rcline :)

    I'm planning to run a couple circles of old fashioned 3-rail O scale with a pair of Lionel Trains: a 1959 2-4-2 "scout" and 1946 4-6-2 "Dreyfus Hudson" Should be fun stuff!
