"What scale is Hartland, 1/29?"

Rodney;

They are closest to 1:24. The trolleys, the long coaches, and the Mack switcher are reasonably scaled models. Many of their other offerings are fairly toy-like, BUT 1) they are very robust, 2) they make great kit-bashing fodder, and 3) the mechanisms are bullet-proof.

Regards,
David Meashey

I've got the Jupiter and like it. I feel it's 1:24, the awkward age... not quite narrow, not quite standard...
I've read that the boilers are short, but I think that was part of early G when compression aided the tight curves.
They are fine 10' locos* and will be a good platform for extra details.


*The informal 10' rule ... if you can't see it at 10' don't worry. Many details won't be seen.
However if it bugs you....that different!

Happy Rails,
John
