A Feldbahn, or Lorenbahn, is the German term for a narrow-gauge field railway, usually not open to the public, which in its simplest form provides for the transportation of agricultural, forestry (Waldbahn) and industrial raw materials such as wood, peat, stone, earth and sand.
Finescale standards or Fine Standards are model railway standards that aim to be close to the prototype dimensions.
G scale (or G gauge) is a scale for model railways which, because of its size and durability, is often used outdoors.
A garden railroad or garden railway (railroad in the US, railway elsewhere) is a model railway system set up outdoors in a garden.
Gn15 is a rail modelling scale, using G scale 1:22.5 scale trains running on H0/00 gauge track, representing minimum gauge and miniature railways.
H0f gauge (or H0i gauge) is a rail transport modelling scale representing Feldbahn-style 2 ft and 600 mm gauge railways using 1:87 HO scale running on Z gauge track.
H0m gauge is used to represent metre-gauge trains in H0 scale.
HO or H0 is a rail transport modelling scale using a 1:87 scale (3.5 mm to 1 foot).
HOn30 (also called HOn2½, HO9 and H0e) gauge is the modelling of narrow-gauge railways in HO on N gauge track in 1:87 scale ratio.
HOn3 gauge represents the modelling of gauge railways in HO scale, resulting in a model track gauge of (the same as H0m and TT scale).
The system of imperial units or the imperial system (also known as British Imperial or Exchequer Standards of 1825) is the system of units first defined in the British Weights and Measures Act of 1824, which was later refined and reduced.
LGB stands for Lehmann Gross Bahn - the "Lehmann Big Railway" in German.
This page lists the most relevant model railway scale standards in the world.
Minimum-gauge railways have a gauge of most commonly,,,, or.
Model engineering is the pursuit of constructing proportionally-scaled working representations of full-sized machines in miniature.
N scale is a popular model railway scale.
A narrow-gauge railway (narrow-gauge railroad in the US) is a railway with a track gauge narrower than the standard.
Normen Europäischer Modellbahnen (German) or Normes Européennes de Modélisme ferroviaires (French) are standards for model railroads, issued by the MOROP.

O14 is a set of model railway standards for accurately modelling narrow-gauge railways in 1:43.5 (7 mm scale) using gauge track.
On2 gauge is part of the hobby of rail transport modeling.
On2 Technologies, formerly known as The Duck Corporation, was a small publicly traded company (on the American Stock Exchange), founded in New York City in 1992 and headquartered in Clifton Park, New York, that designed video codec technology.
On30 (also called On2, O16.5 and Oe) '''gauge''' is the modelling of narrow gauge railways in O scale on HO gauge track in 1:48 scale ratio by American model railroaders, in 1:43.5 scale ratio by British and French model railroaders and 1:45 by Continental European model railroaders (excluding France).

Queensland (abbreviated as Qld) is the second-largest and third-most populous state in the Commonwealth of Australia.
Railway modelling (UK, Australia and Ireland) or model railroading (US and Canada) is a hobby in which rail transport systems are modelled at a reduced scale.
Rail transport modelling uses a variety of scales (ratio between the real world and the model) to ensure scale models look correct when placed next to each other.
Railway Modeller is a monthly British magazine about Model Railways published by Peco.
S scale (or S gauge) is a model railroad scale modeled at 1:64 scale, S scale track gauge (space between the rails) is.
The scale ratio of a model represents the proportional ratio of a linear dimension of the model to the same feature of the original.
Scratch building is the process of building a scale model "from scratch", i.e. from raw materials, rather than building it from a commercial kit, kitbashing or buying it pre-assembled.
SE scale is a designation used by a growing number of modellers to describe miniature (model) trains which run on either Gauge 1 track or O gauge track.
In rail transport modelling, Sn3½ is a scale/gauge combination derived from S scale to represent narrow gauge track by using gauge track (the same as HO gauge).
