H is for H0 Scale Model Trains
H0 scale model trains are 1/ 87th the size of regular rolling stock! The “H” stands for “half” since this gauge is half the size of “O” scale. These are the most popular scale of model trains in North America.
Central BC Railway and Forestry Museum has a large collection of H0 scale model trains. A small portion of this collection can be seen displayed in our gift shop. In this display you can even see a rare model of one of the sisters of our electric locomotive.
We are currently working on a H0 scale model layout which features some industries significant to BC such as forestry, railway transportation, and mining.
