Railroad rulers

I plan to buy a railroad reference ruler. Need suggestions for the best one for O scale. Must be durable and precise.

How about this one? I don't have one, but it looks like it meets your requirements.

there's a few places on the net where you can print out your own, not very durable, but easy to make new ones, and fast too!

That's the one I have, or something very close. Very well made, and stainless is about as durable as it gets.
