Bachmann is the only producer in HO, Hornby is 00.

And Thomas is based on a real loco, with a face added.

Thomas is based on a LBSCR E2 class loco, however while in the original "railway series" books Thomas looked like the prototype, as Scottychaos pointed out the TV series locos are not scale models of the prototypes and are not that close. Bachmann's HO models resemble the TV series, not the prototypes (and books). Thus they are not scale models. However as some of the stock is based on preexisting Bachmann British models these would be OO, not HO. The Large Scale Thomas appears to follow the Bachmann HO model, i.e. it follows the TV series and is not a scale model.

In most cases Hornby's are scale models of the prototypes with faces added. They are OO.
