You have a large O Scale (1:48) train layout with a 54 foot 11-57/64 inch mainline run, and you want to know how long that is in real feet. Type in the 54 in the Scale Size (Model) section Feet box, 11 in the Inches box, and 57/64 in the Fraction box. Then choose [1:48 - O] from the Scale box. Now, click on the Convert to Actual button and you'll see 2639 ft. 11-13/16 in. appear in the Actual Size (Real World) section. This would make your O scale (1:48) mainline roughly 1/2 mile long.
Also, if I'm missing a scale, let me know. e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
