Can anyone who has both the scale locomotives or bogies take a picture with the two scale prototypes side by side. I have H0 prototypes from Mehano, but I have decided to get Hornby which are OO. Just want to see if it looks very different. Thanks a ton!

Welcome to the forum! Honestly, I have never heard anyone here mention that they model OO scale... Most are from the US and the scale is very uncommon here... Now, HO scale is 1:87 and OO scale is 1:76.2 (slightly bigger), yet they run on the same track... To give yourself an idea, you could always measure one of your HO locomotives and multiply the numbers by (87/76.2) to give you its OO measurements... For reference, 1 cm in HO is roughly 1.14 cm in OO...

Thanks a ton. I was afraid of this. The puny Thomas looks bigger that the right steam. :)
