I'm working on a new 0n30 layout where there will be a U.S. Navy Auxiliary Seaplane Base with a couple of PBYs on the ramp.

I want to use the Plasticville motel (#45616) for some base housing units.

Can anyone tell me the height of the doorways on this unit?

Thanks & Happy RRing,

Jerry

The height from the bottom sill to top of door is 1.75 in. It is closer to s gauge than o so cars people etc. will be smaller than 1/48

A big Thank You for the reply!

Since 1.75" is equivalent to 84" in 1:48, and a 'standard' door is nominally 80" tall, I think the buildings will be okay for my intended use.

I had already assumed that these buildings were probably small for 0-scale, and intend to use them in the background. Call it 'forced perspective!'

Thanks Again, & Happy RRing.

Most stuff from Plasticvile until there was H.O. was made to be used with either S or O gauge trains. The stuff for O gauge is much closer to S gauge.

Just an observation, but most O gauge trains are not always scale models or they have differant scale sizes; anything from 1:43 to 1:48 is supposed to be O gauge.
