As Bob, TGB, and David suggested, think about what you want to do...

There are several scales that can me modeled using HO track gauge. From Sn42 to ???.
I use 16.5MM gauge for my 2' railroad, choosing 1:35 scale (military scale),
since there are many cool details available,
and in that scale, HO track gauge is pretty much "dead on" as 24" gauge.
I could also consider my stuff as 1:32 (3/8") scale and then the gauge would be 20"...
Awww, my old mind is boggled already.

1:55n3, 1:24n15 (Gn15), on and on...it's your choice.
We all love our chosen scales and each has it's special charms.
As for me, I have always enjoyed scratchbuilding,
and even if I chose an "established" scale, I would want to make stuff myself.

As I like to say-"have fun and run a train today!"

Woodie
