Reply to "Scale?"

John got the scale and ratio tangled up.

For O Scale the ratio is 1/48.  "48 to the foot" is accurate, but confusing.  1/4" = 1'0" is the correct way to state the scale.

1/48 = 1' is mixing a ratio with a dimension.  Ratios are not dimensioned.  Note that 1/4" divided by 12" will give you 1/48.
