Model trains were popular back in the early 1900's and in those days, the most used were O scale model trains. The good thing about O gauge trains was that although they were small, they were not too small for everybody to handle, including kids. Subsequently, several sizes became available, and the O scale fell out of favor. In the 1990's, a different company began producing trains in this size all over again, and new people found the enjoyment of model trains.
A very important factor that tends to make this size popular is because it is less complicated to put together a permanent background and track. When using the smaller sizes, the details on the setup can begin to merge together, which makes it challenging to have an awesome setup. With the slightly greater size of the O gauge trains, it really is less of a challenge to make all of your other models to the correct 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 children.

This may be from the nostalgia of adults, because they could have played with the 3 rail model as kids.
