Best answer:

Answer by mariner31
Scale is the ratio of the model to the real-life prototype… HO is 1:87 (1 foot of model = 87 feet).

GAUGE signifies the distance between the rails.

S Scale – a model railroad with a proportional size of 1:64 (or 3/16″ = 1′-0″)

0 scale – a model railroad built to 1:43 scale, 7 mm:1 foot (1:43.5), 1:45 scale, or 1:48 scale.
