O27 questions

1194 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  T-Man
Ok I an considering starting a second layout for my kids. Currently everything I have done is HO. I was thinking of an simple O27 layout on a 4x8. Most likely a figure 8. All I want is a simple steamer, box, gondola (kids have to be able to load and unload it) and of course a caboose. I want to do this as cheaply as possible since unlike the HO this will be at their height. I will be letting the 3 year old drive too. I have the following questions:
1. Recommend any engines to look for / stay away from?
2. What size transformer (watt)?
3. Do they make 3 rail in NS like HO?
4. What am I getting myself into?
5. I was thinking of looking for Lionel, is that a good idea?
