.......... and over here we have 00 - which runs on 16.5 mm track but is 4mm : 1ft ................... and, surprisingly is probably the most popular model railway scale in the UKYour math is fine..
and the solution to the discrepency is simple: All kinds of model trains, in many scales, run on a gauge that doesnt precicely match the scale.
It's been going on since the dawn of time, was very common in the O-scale and S-scale Tinplate world, and we still have a lot of it today: 1/29, On30, HOn30..
