NMRA Standards and Recommended Practices

The NMRA Standards were developed as a way to help insure that equipment could be interchanged between one model railroad and another and that cars and locomotives of one manufacturer could run on the track of another manufacturer together with cars and equipment of still other manufacturers and modelers.NMRA Standards provide the primary basis upon which Interchange between equipment and various North American scale model railroads is founded. Under this requirement NMRA Standards include only those factors that are considered vital to such Interchange. For less critical matters see the NMRA Recommended Practices.
