Default Which scale?

What scale is closest to 40k in model railroading?

FYI, I found this great article at prophet miniatures about scale problems:

It was intresting though it didn't really tell anything about figuring out the scales.

Gw model scale.

space marine-1/54
Gaurd vehicle-1/35
marine vehicle-1/40or 1/35 (unsure what their fluff size is since they carry same amount of men in a rinho as marines.)
Tau-1/31(I read some where that Tau are accually 4 or so ft tall. Is this true? If not there same as gaurd.
Tau vehicle-1/26 or 1/35 for same reson as above.

I made these #'s a while ago in comparision to my other models.(They are 1/35 or 1/72.

Also remember that most 40k and fntsy have massive hands and wepons compared to the model.
Gw uses something called Hero scale.

I would think a Rail Road scale of S(It's the middle one right?I know theres o s n but I don't remember wich is wich.)

I found another link that shows all the possible railroad scales and how many mm equal a foot.
