HO or OO scale in size O Scale's ability to fill up space means you can start with fewer
pieces of rolling stock that will achieve the same effect as lots of rolling stock in the
The flipside of O scales ability to fill up space is its ability
to eat up space where a mainline is being modelled. The length required to model large
mainline runs can be phenomenal. However, for branchlines, industrial layouts and other
small space layouts, pioneered over the years by Ian Rice amongst others, O scale is
On a small layout the cost of setting up can be significantly less
than it would be in the smaller scales.
You may have to build most, if not all, of your models. The skills
required for building in O scale are no different to what you need to make a plane, tank,
Fewer models mean that the level of detail can be much greater.
The same can be said for the scenic work too.
The final payoff: being bigger, fine detail in O scale is easier
to achieve. Ever tried putting scale 3-link or screw-link on an N scale model?
