    thinking of picking up a bachmann blue comet set (used) at the lhs. i am die hard n scale i don't know why i am doing this other than the pretty blue color:oops: .
    this large scale stuff gets me confused, is the bachmann G 1:20.3 or 1:32 as some have told me?

    Not familiar with the set in question (it isn't on the Bachmann site) so it's kind of hard to tell--items built for #1 gauge track can be anywhere from 1:20.3 to 1:32 depending on the gauge of the model being represented--and there is a shocking lack of standardization in large-scale stuff, even among items that are supposedly the same scale.

    G scale is so broadly unstandarized, you'll probably ahve better luck asking on a large scale only forum. might tyry asking on the Trains.com forums for their garden scale, that might get you more data on the subject.

    All of the Bachman G scale sets I have seen ( I have 4)are 1:20 -As far I know the only one who manufactures 1:32 is MTH.

    Davido, all Big Hauler sets are to a scale of 1:22.5, only the newer Spectrum Series Locomotives are to a scale of 1:20.3. So your set is definately 1:22.5 scale (same as most LGB).
