    Hi. Why is it that in Rail Images the scale is, most the time, not stated ? Details and such have improved so greatly that it's often hard to tell if we're looking at Z, N, HO, or even S scales in these pics..One way is if the couplers are way large compared to the end of the car, or rail height looks too tall. Sometimes I can tell that it's N, and not HO. But, is it possibly Z, not N ?! Anyway, I'd just like to see Tboard program in a small box in the pics, where the scale is entered and pic can not be posted until box is filled. Or, Is it in fact stated somewhere and I'm just not aware of how to view it ? I'm just trying to improve the RI pages experience. Thanks, M

    I'm stumped too on determining scale with many photos these days.

    Pictures can be tagged for scale (among other categories) but there is no requirement to do so.

    I thoroughly enjoy seeing samples of everyone's work, but I wish more would tag a bit of info along with the pictures for reference.

    It's up to the person who uploads any photo. It frustrates many of us, when they fail to think of this.... And there are some who simply assume everyone models in a certain size- Which is patently false, but.... :(:(:(

    Yeah, I'm guilty of this, even though most times I'm asking myself "what scale" when looking at other's photos.

    I upload some of my models to Facebook, and it is fun to watch all of the HO modelers assume that it is an HO model...
