The term Code 110 and Code 88 relates to the width of the
wheels and has no relationship to track code. Code 110 wheels are .110″
wide and Code 88 are .088″ wide. Code 110 wheels are the common (or
“Standard”) width wheels and Code 88 are what is called “Semi-Scale”
and are used when the modeler wants a more prototypical looking wheel
width. Actual HO-Scale prototypical wheel width would be around .067″
wide and although they will run OK on the average track they will not
go through common turnouts and crossings. Code 88 (.088″) is just about
the minimum width of wheel that will run on most standard or common
track if gauged correctly. It really is a matter of appearances because
there’s very little operational differences between running Code 110 or
Code 88 wheels. Code 88 wheels look really good and are most noticeable
on open frame cars like hoppers and tank cars. However, they also look
great on boxcars, gondolas, and reefers but not quite as noticeable. As
mentioned above track code and wheel code have no relationship meaning
Code 110 and Code 88 will run on most any code of track. Track code is
simply the measured height of the rail, code 100 is .100″ tall, code 83
is .083″ tall, code 70 is .070″ tall, and so on.
