Hi Krokodil,
Re your first post above, what is the calculation of scale speed? I read on a forum some years back that it's not as simple as reducing the prototype speed by the amount of the scale, e.g. for TT you don't just reduce it to 1/120 of the prototype speed.
I think the same is true for time - e.g. when switching, if you "wait" to change the turnouts on your model, as some people like to do when operating, you're not going to wait the amount of time the real operator would wait (everyone would get bored to death), but you're going to wait longer than 1/120 of that time.

Well, time is time. It has nothing to do with scale. Speed however does - so a 1/120 train would cover 1/120th the distance a 1:1 train would during the same time while going the same scale speed.

But none of these things have anything to do with time itself. Again, time doesn't get scaled. These are physical space problems. The fact that you don't have the physical space to put a scale 100 miles between stations has nothing to do with time.

If anyone has figured out how to scale time, please report your findings to the world as this would be the greatest achievement possible ;)

Speaking about time, here's a story about timekeeping.

I know many stations much shorter than that. Or is it just one extra zero in your post by an error?
