Subject: Re: [OSCALEMODELERS] NMRA Weights

This should help. From the NMRA Website:To find the optimum weight of a given car enter the Table below in the desired scale and find the "Initial Weight". Then find the "Additional Weight" and multiply this by the number of actual inches in the length of the particular car body. Add this weight to the "Initial Weight" for the total Optimum Weight of the car.SCALE INITIAL WEIGHT

(ounces)+ ADDITIONAL WEIGHT

per inch of car body length

(Ounces)O 5 + 1 0n3 1-1/2 + 3/4 S 2 + 1/2 Sn3 1 + 1/2 HO 1 + 1/2 HOn3 3/4 + 3/8 TT 3/4 + 3/8 N 1/2 + .15 **From:**"gldoran@..." <gldoran@...>**To:**OSCALEMODELERS@yahoogroups.com**Sent:**Tuesday, January 21, 2014 10:32 AM**Subject:**[OSCALEMODELERS] NMRA WeightsI am starting to build some cars again and I lost my sheet with the NMRA correct weight for cars both in O and HO scale.
