HO- Scale Trains

 

 

 

 

 

The name HO is derived from the fact that its 1:87 scale is approximately half that of O scale, hence HO. O scale in turn was named following the older and larger 1, 2, and 3 scales.  HO scale trains first appeared in the United Kingdom in the 1930s and became very popular in the United States, where it took off in the late 1950s after more emphasis began to be placed on realism in model trains in response to hobbyist demand. While HO scale is by nature more delicate than O scale, its smaller size allows modelers to fit more details and more scale miles into a comparable area.  Currently, HO is the most popular model railroad scale in both continental Europe and North America.

Esther's Hobby Shop in Millvale offers an excellent selection of HO locomotives, rolling stock, buildings, and scenery from the best manufacturers in a variety of price ranges.  Call, email or stop by for all of your HO scale needs.

set up to meet all of your HO wants and needs!
