N Gauge, More Than Just a Train


1962 was the year when the N scale models, also referred to as N gauge trains, were officially marketed. But what made the producers think that it is marketable? What is an N gauge train? Well, N gauge train is quite a popular model railway which scale ranges from 1:148 to 1:160 depending on which country manufactured it. Whatever the scale is, the gauge is 9 millimeter. N scale models allow the building of layouts by hobbyist with less space as compared to an H0 scale. Likewise, a longer track may be placed on an N scale with the same space in contrast to the H0 scale due to the smaller size of the model. The name N gauge came from the gauge size which is Nine millimeters, with the capital letter “N” being the beginning letter of the word “Nine”. Although very small, it is still not the smallest model in the market. The Z gauge is even smaller with a scale of 1:220 and the not so popular T gauge which is 1:450 in scale.

N Gauge Trains


Currently, although second only to the H0 gauge’s popularity, the N gauge trains nevertheless have a strong following worldwide. A number of standard gauge prototypes of this model are produced globally. This model is also popular to the Japanese since space is a commodity in their country. The H0 scale is already big for their standards and the N gauge fits perfectly. Others who prefer this model intend to construct a more visually complex model and the N gauge is ideal for that purpose.
