Any ideas, I've got a line or two on some British Stock, and I need the advice! I know we've had a handfull of visitors, starting a little over 120 years ago, so it shouldn't be too big a deal to bring some Tri-ang Princess, A3's, and BR 7MT "Britannia's, to the party? Maybe a tank locomotive (no jokes please:mad:)? Give me the imput, because they'll be comming cross the pond when they come (and that's soon!), yea haw!

They are OO for a reason. They are sized to 1/74 or1/76 I believe so the engines are larger then HO because they are for the UK standard. HO is 1/87 so it is smaller then OO. Both scales run on HO scale track for simplicitys sake. the code 100 could have very likely been for OO scale originaly then the code 83 adopted for the HO prototypical ness. If you actually want them to be HO size from OO their is no way to do it as they are sized differently. Both run on DC current except for Marklin which has been know to run on three rail AC.
