GaugePage

Thinking of getting started in trains?

The scale and gauge are important, but consider what size of layout you want to start with. Start with something you can complete, and let that
accomplishment drive your expansion. Nobody needs another unfinished project!

Get the family involved, let the kids help choose what’s on the layout and then build it with them, so they can learn and enjoy the
process with you. If you move on to a bigger layout, they will probably ‘inherit’ the first one anyway.

    I really like this Scale Tale page, however it appears the most important scale has been left off
    That is the one between s and o which has I believe a minimum radius of 27 inches with a scale between 1:48 and 1:64 which of course is the Lionel type toy trains

    the most popular train in the USA
