Model Railroads and Scale Buildings

Creating a model railroad must be done properly or it will not be in balance. A railroad is built according to scale. The scale for the train must be the same as the scale used for scenery and buildings. If the scale does not match you can have a tree taller than a skyscraper and your railroad will not have the correct appearance. The simplest and most common scale used is one inch per every foot of the actual size.
