H0m gauge is used to represent metre gauge trains in the HO scale. It runs on gauge tracks (which is the same as TT scale). Modern HOm trains run on realistic-looking two-rail track, which is powered by direct current (varying the voltage applied to the rails to change the speed, and polarity to change direction), or by Digital Command Control (sending commands to a decoder in each locomotive). It is a popular scale in Europe, particularly for trains of Swiss outline.
