Beautiful detailing. Would love to see it. But you're on the "far side of the pond," though! Oh well, at least we have 'net pics!

Thanks,

TJ

That's a nice looking layout.

So I guess OO and O are completely different.
I have some Lionel O, or I guess it may be O27, but I don't like how unrealistic the three rail track looks.

OO is approx 1:76, and actually dates back to the 1920's. Big in the UK. Lionel actually had a line of OO in the late '30's / early '40's, but it never really caught on in the US. Surprisingly, as Lionel's mainstream O began to decline in the tail of the 1950's, the smaller HO gained great popularity. In a way, Lionel was ahead of it's time with it's early OO run, but perhaps too early. It never really saw the HO birth on it's horizons.

Part of Lionel's decline was simply bad business decisions by Lionel in reducing the quality of the product.

I have just one problem with the communities section of the forums. What exactly are they for? I mean in this sub forum alone their is only one person connected with it and he has not been on for a while and doesn't say a lot. I am just confused to why it is here and its purpose. Oh and I really like the layout as i said above.
