Hi everyone
Please excuse my ignorance, as Im just beginning my trip into retirement and modelling.
A simple question to start my quest
I have a good collection of diecast vehicles made on 1/76 scale, can someone please tell me what gauge railway I should be building
so that the trains complement the vehicles?
I will no doubt have many more queries over the coming years, but this will get me up and running
Thank you

Welcome - You're in luck as you've joined the friendly forum.

00 is 1:76 so the one to use for your modelling.

Welcome to the forum. What era are your vehicles? My layout is set in the mid/late forties and there seems to be a distinct shortage of suitable vehicles for that period.
Many times the wrong train took me to the right place.
