Question by : About how much space would I need to build a model HO scale railroad hobby of the U.K. or most of California?
I would love to do such a model railroad hobby but I’m ONLY GUESSING that would take up half a city but I’m hoping someone might know how I would figure out such a question
Answer by Boyaki
HO scale is 1:87 scale size.
The UK has a total land area of 241,930 sq km.
So, the UK in HO scale would be around 2781 sq km.
The state of Rhode Island, if I’m figuring correctly, is around 1700 sq km.
