Many people frown on mixing scales/gauges on the same layout. As a (mostly) tinplate guy, I've never worried about scale proportions and mixing O and Standard Gauge. Here's a shot of the 2 together.

TJ,, Nope, left to right, 0;027;027;027.......ROFLMAO!! Just kidding.

Of course, the old standard I.D., is four digit numbered locos are 027, and three digit numbered are “0”, but some nit pickers will argue that point.

I never quite bought the O vs. O27 rule, as neither is a true-scale model. And so, how would one really characterize one vs. the other? Except Lionel did ... lumping O generally into the big-boy, more expensive toys, and O27 into the kids, less expensive toys.
