  • Scale and Gauge in Proportion

    Joe Brook-Smith

    Issue 39 (1990)

    p.486

    The proliferation of designations dreamed up by modellers working to varying degrees of prototype accuracy has done little to help newcomers and novices in the hobby, but the problem is much older than that. Joe Brook SMith - famous for the finescale track-building system which bears his name - is a serious student of model railway history and explains how the 'domino effect' of compromise and confusion has landed us in our present mess. He offers some aids to understanding and some pointers to a simpler future.
