ga. - Ga. -- gauge (NOT guage) -- the distance between railheads on railroad track, specifically 4' 8½" in the Standard Gauge used around most of the world (5' in Russia). This was determined by the ruts left in the paving of Roman army roads from the passing of standardized Roman army chariots, with their iron-tired wheels. The width of the chariot was determined by the breadth of the hindquarters of the Roman army chariot horses. Thus, Standard Gauge was determined by Roman army horses' asses. (See also "in." and "ft." -- as ludicrous as this may seem, it is also true.)

e.g., "Scale" refers to reduction, such as 1:220 for Z or 1:87.08571428571428571428571428571428571 -- for HO, while the Z ga. is only 6.5mm (~¼") and HO ga. is 16.5mm (0.650").
