What’s an O Gauger ? .. A person who enjoys running or collecting O Gauge trains ( or O Scale)….. So …..

What’s an “O-Gauge” train ?…… Think of the Lionel trains of the 40’s and 50’s, but a slightly larger size…..

Most of our trains are O or 027, which both run on the same width 3 rail track. 027 is so named because its full circle of track has a 27” diameter. It is also the size of the original Lionel trains. The taller track for 0 generally is 31” to 72” full circle diameter, but the distance between the inside and outside rails is the same as 027, so the smaller 027 stock can run on the 0 track.
