    What we want to do is give O27 fans something on which to base their own appreciation of O27 trains, semi-scale and a better sense of toy train operations. Non-scale is not semi-scale. They have plastic trucks and couplers with diecast wheels. O27 track is the same width as O Gauge track, and is made the same way—all metal, and usually with 3 crossties per section. Playing with toys is supposed to be an enjoyable means of training young children for Super-O gauge[ edit ] "Super-O gauge" is a variant whose origin stems from Lionel's desire to create a more realistic looking track and improve sagging sales in the late s.

    O Scale in the UK is commonly O27 is still available. True O27 fits within the definition of semi-scale. All I know is that in pulling tests, a cheap old Marx E7 bested three up-to-date Lionel locos when it came to handling a grade with a tight curve. You can either apply a small drop of ca glue to the back of each piece between the tie and rail just to be sure or live with it.

    The point-to-point railroad is the most realistic model railroad design. You want the rail heated up. It had three rails, plus realistic ties and its own special connectors. O Gauge track is all metal, usually with three crossties per section.

Wipe the top of the rail occasionally with cleaner, then wipe clean. You can buy both the plastic and diecast trucks, complete with couplers and wheels, as well as loose wheelsets. Goo Gone!
