Interesting Information - HO Code 83 vs. Code 100 Track

HO Code 83 vs. Code 100 Track

Rail code in any scale refers to its height in thousandths of an inch, hence code 1-- is .100" and code 83 is .083" tall.  In HO scale, code 83 is closer in scale size to the most common mainline rail used in North America, so its very popular with advanced modelers and its smaller size makes the models look more massive.
