Hello O's

I have a question about the 3 rail O scale track

Is the power just in the center rail?

Is new O scale equipment made for two rail track?

The reason I ask is that I am thinking of setting up a smallish O scale layout for the neighborhood kids to play with.

Thanks

I run old marx prewar and late 1950's 0 and 027 3 rail. The outer rails are neutral the center rail is hot this is AC. You can isolate one of the outer rails to run crossing signals and block signals. There are makers of new 3 rail as well as 2 rail DC.

And, as a bonus, the kids will eventually grow up and join in the fun of teasing Reckers about his S-scale toys!
