Model trains were extremely popular back in the early 1900's and in those days, typically the most popular were O scale model trains. The wonderful thing about O gauge trains was that though they were small, they were not too small for everybody to handle, including kids. Subsequently, various sizes became available, and the O scale fell out of favor. In the 1990's, an innovative company began producing trains in this size once more, and new people learned the enjoyment of model trains.

Something that tends to make this size popular is because it is less complicated to put together a permanent background and track. Using the smaller sizes, the details on the setup can begin to merge together, rendering it challenging to have an awesome setup. With the slightly greater size of the O gauge trains, it's less of a challenge to make all of your other models to the appropriate scale, therefore you do not have to sacrifice any details.

The O gauge tends to make an excellent starter set for anyone of any age. They are the best size for the smaller hands of children. They are able to put them together easier, and pick the trains up and cope with them easier after a derailment. O scale trains used to come in just a 3 rail model, but currently are also for sale in a 2 rail model. Lots of people still favor the 3 rail model. This may be from the nostalgia of adults, because they might have played with the 3 rail model as kids.

Of all the various scales offered, model trains O scale are the most in-demand. Part of the reason being it is a lot easier to put together a miniature world to go along with the train set. For many, their earliest exposure to model trains were trains that were O scale. They are also much more available when compared with most of the other train sizes. Due to their size, they are a superb option to give to a child as their own starter set, as well as straightforward for a beginner to cope with. If you're thinking about model trains, check into the O scale trains.
