For example, how many inches would I need to have a beam if it measured 12 foot long in actual, converted down to HO scale? I found a FREE calculator for model railroaders (both Windows and Mac versins) called ScaleCalc.

The reason I was looking for a calculator this morning is that I had found a 'Generic Deck Planking' on a Model Ship website. Entered the .028 into the inches box (set to Inches (Dec) put HO into the 'Convert From' box and 'Prototype' into the 'To' box.

Kemtron, Picard, and many others still fascinate collectors and a few dedicated modelers ("retro-modelers") today.

This scale is also sometimes referred to in print as American 00 with two zeros, but most sources back in the day and today call it American OO (pronounced "double oh"). Z scale is about 2? times smaller than HO! In Z scale, a scale ?-mile is exactly (and only) 6 feet; in other words, a mile is only 24 feet!

Then, to further confuse matters, some manufacturers have made figures a bit larger than the stated scale - so, "ya pays yer money and ya takes yer chances"!

Input any two of the four factors (level distance, incline distance, rise, or grade) and it will calculate the other two. Input any three of the four factors (rise, radius, number of turns, and grade) and it will calculate the other one, as well as rise per turn (to see if you have enough room between levels for the train) and track distance (to see if you have enough money).

Just noticed that under 'Edit --> Edit Scales' you can arrange the scales like you want including deleting or adding a custom one. It fills the available space with a helix with the largest possible radius and makes it oval-shaped if the space is not square. It then calculates the radius, the length of the straight sections (if any), the grade, the spacing between levels, and the total track needed.
