Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. British N gauge is a model railway scale and gauge, rolling stock is to a scale of 1:148, track is 9mm width as with all other N gauges making track and rolling stock approximately 10% out of scale with respect to each other. When N gauge was developed it proved impossible to fit the then available motors into scale models of British prototype locomotives. British railways use a smaller loading gauge than those in Europe and America, resulting in smaller locomotives. A greater body size was required on the models to accommodate the motors, so instead of adopting the correct 1:160 scale, 1:148 was used. This allows larger models, but means that the gauge is not an accurate representation of standard gauge. A similar problem and solution was adopted with OO gauge and British TT gauge in Britain. However, N since it scales to approximately 4'4½" gauge it is less out of scale than OO or TT3 in representing the 4'8½" standard gauge.
