I think they're talking about the "other" TT, 3MM scale that's more common in the UK. Originally they used the same 12 MM gauge as American TT, but the bodies were slightly larger for more room. If I'm not mistaken there's a group that does 3MM with a 14.2 mm gauge that's correct.

Yep, 100:1, but a 14mm wheel is a 14mm wheel.

Yes Al that site is an off shoot of 3smr here in the UK. 14.2 is the correct gauge for what used to be called Tri-ang TT3 and is increasingly used as the the normal scale, as opposed to 12mm.
