General Advice on Buying G-Scale

Sizes and Scales

G “Scale” is a bit misleading as there are multiple scales from 1:22.5 to 1:30 that. It’s best to go for makes/brands your familiar with unless you can physically compare with your existing stock. However, with a little thought different scales can be acceptable by avoiding running too obviously different stock in the same train
and watching the scale of figures.


For Track, consider what you are going to run, if battery r/c or live steam then as long as the track is sound appearance doesn’t matter. If track powered, then you’ll need clean track, though old dirty looking track will generally clean up well.

DCC (Digital Command Control)

There are a number of different DCC type control systems that are not compatible with each other and some are out of production.
