QUOTE (Saint Johnstoun @ 31 Dec 2008, 13:00) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I work out that a mile is approx 69 feet in OO scale.

Calculation. 5280 feet x 4mm = 21120mm

21120 mm divided by 3048mm for a foot equals 69.29 feet.

(1 centimetre = 2.54 inches)
Your calculation is correct, but 2.54cm ( or 25.4mm if you prefer) = 1 inch not the other way round as you said above.

Yes it is a long way, that's why N gauge is so popular, you can get more of the prototype in a given space, about twice as much.
