Model trains were favored back in the early 1900's and during those times, the most popular were O scale model trains. The good thing about O gauge trains was that though they were small, they were not too small for everyone to handle, including kids. Then, various sizes became available, and the O scale fell out of favor. In the 1990's, an innovative company commenced making trains in this size once more, and new people found the joy of model trains.
One thing that makes this size popular is because it is a lot easier to set up a permanent background and track. With the smaller sizes, the details on the setup can start to mix together, making it tough to have a terrific setup. With the slightly bigger size of the O gauge trains, it is less difficult to make all of your other models to the appropriate scale, therefore you do not have to sacrifice any details.
The O gauge can make an excellent starter set for anyone of any age. They are a superb size for the smaller hands of kids. They can put them together easier, as well as pick the trains up and manage them easier after a derailment. O scale trains used to come in only a 3 rail model, but currently are also obtainable in a 2 rail model. A lot of people still like the 3 rail model. This may be from the nostalgia of adults, because they could have played with the 3 rail model as kids.
Of all the numerous scales available, model trains O scale are the preferred. Part of this is because it is easier to put together a miniature world to go along with the train set. For many, their first exposure to model trains were trains that were O scale. They are also much more available compared to most of the other train sizes. As a consequence of their size, they are a fantastic option to give to a child as their own starter set, and simple for a beginner to handle. For anyone who is thinking about model trains, check into the O scale trains.
