John, you are doing what I have been thinking about for ages - how nice it would be to try O gauge. I will be interested in how this project develops and to see just how much you can get into the space available. Nice loco too.

Yes Phill - it's nearly twice the size.  7mm to the foot rather than 4mm.  It's also, coincidentally, a more accurate scale compared to the prototype - as you know, "OO" is not an accurate reduction - "HO" is nearer.

At that scale, you can get some superb detail into the models but then that always is a double-edged sword.  If you don't have the ability to model the detail .........................

Without it, I always think "O" gauge looks a bit lacking whereas you can get away with less in "OO" - (IMHO :oops:)

The problem is once you start in O there's no going back - everything else seems to lack presence - or at least it does to me ;-)

That's very true - on the other hand you usually don't need as much stock (0 gauge takes up a lot of space!) and most of it is kit built so it takes time to get running. You don't have the instant gratification of buying something RTR.

Even that which is available RTR usually requires numbering, internal details and weathering. Purchases are more considered and definitely not impulse buys.

Hi, yes I'd agree with Julian in comparison the stock level in 'O' is minimal compared to 'OO' and size of layout (unless your Pete Waterman). Most 'O' gaugers only have a few loco's and a reasonable collection of wagons but most 'OO' modellers usally have numerous loco's & DMU's, rakes of coaches plus fiddle yards full of wagons.

:cool winkNigel

0gauge doesn't have to be expensive, I have on the bench a 55XX 2-6-2 (photos on a new thread once I've charged the camera batteries). She is scratch built and will have cost less than £80.00 which includes wheels,motor and gears.
