Welcome to NZ120.org

NZ120 is the name given to the modelling of New Zealand’s railways at a scale of 1:120. NZ120 combines commercially available N scale track, mechanisms and parts at a bigger size than N scale to represent New Zealand’s railways. NZ120 allows for much longer trains and bigger scenery than other scales.  New Zealand’s railways are built to a narrow track gauge of 3 foot 6 inches (1067mm), while most railways around the world use a standard track gauge of 4 feet 8.5 inches (1435.1 mm). This means most models are created for standard gauge prototypes.  The scale of 1:120 is the same as TT scale, a scale particularly popular in Europe – for narrow gauge, it is also referred to as TTn3.5, or TT9 for the 9mm gauge of the track. NZ120.org exists to develop and foster the NZ120 community by providing a spot where you can find relevant information and help, and you can contribute to discussions.
