Ho scale buildings

I've just purchased a Ho set and I'm wondering if Triang buildings are the correct scale for an Ho layout or could somebody advise me on which buildings are the correct scale.

Triang buildings and trackside accessories are generally 1/32. Some, such as bridges can look OK next to a HO track.
For proper HO scale, use railway scenery, or search for Faller. They make plenty of HO pieces.

ho or oo scale is from memory 1:74 or 1:72 and ho cars are 1:64 so they will be pretty close.
Ho scale is 3.5mm to the foot... OO scale is 4mm to the foot.... not a lot of difference as ade says... a six ft person in Ho would be 21mm or 24mm in OO...
You can get a away with a lot with some clever forced perspective trickery.
Thanks for the advice guys I'll have a look around.


Are you coming to Gaydon for the Festival?

Which set to you get by the way?
When I said set I should of said bulk buy from eBay loads of track and a gt40 plus the ghost racer set and a Porsche.
I've had some really good guidance from Andy Player on what to buy and where from.

I won't be at gaydon due to health reasons but my 2 cohorts in the magazine will be there.

Cheers Wayne.
Look up Triang Minic Motorways on Fleabay.
They made lovely pit buildings with a press box on top, a Le-Mans style footbridge & a stop/start timekeepers style building.They also sold fencing & flagpoles.Also look out for their pit lane figures. Quite rare, but not as expensive as they ought to be.
All can still be had at a very reasonable price.
I've got a triang kiosk type thing that I bought to use with my 1:32 layout but its way too small so thought it might work with my Ho instead.
