Can you guess to what scale the top five or six best selling model trains belong? Consider the retailer, Amazon, before making your decision. Then click on my article link below to see if you’re right.
I wonder what the stats would look like if this was broken down by scale and not by set. There are far more HO sets competing in the same scale than O ones. So if people are looking for an HO set they are less likely to chose the same one as people looking for an O set.
Good point. But Amazon doesn't break down sales by number, unfortunately. But here's a quick list of the next items after 10:
11. HO Thundering Rails Train Set
12. Lionel FasTrack O36 Curve Track
13: Life Like HO Scale 9-inch Straight Track
14: Bachmann HO 9-inch straight track
15: Bachmann Smoke Fluid
16: Lie-Like Track Expander Set HO
17: Life Like Railr Charger Diesel Freight Set HO
18: Steel Alloy HO Expander Track Set
19: Lionel O Gauge Polar Express Caribou
20: Lionel Boy Scouts of America O-Gauge Train Set
As you can see, HO makes a strong comeback in the next set of 10 most popular sellers.
