Question by Brendan Noble: What is the standard track size for a HO Model Train?
I have been given a size HO model train as a birthday present and I would like to build a model railroad in my garden. I am a newbie and I want to start buying materials but I have no idea what size track to buy. I would like to know what is the standard size track for a size HO model train?

The standard size of track is HO. If you go to your local hobby shop, like Hobby Lobby, you’ll find the track you need. There are three main scales of trains sold today, O, HO, and N scale.
The largest of the three is O, then HO, which stands for Half O, meaning HO is half the size of O, and N scale being the smallest. When you shop for your track, just make sure the package says HO.
