Ian - Great exhibit!
But as an old copy editor (proofreader) on my college newspaper, my eye caught a crucial missing "m" - 2.5m per foot is almost full-size! Or maybe it's the one that got restless and wandered over next to the "1:120"?

Perfect display to demonstrate the size of TT and to provide a visual comparsion between TT and the 2 most popular scales.

Yes, noticed that as well when I dug it out of storage last night to have another look. 2.5 metre per foot is shades of Hitler's super size trains. Would make detailing models rather easy.

NEM standard for H0-scale is 1 : 87 (NEM 010).

NMRA standard for H0 is 1 : 87.1 (NMRA S-1.2).

What's the correct Australian standard? :?:
