O Scale Sets
It’s important before deciding on a custom train layout scale, that you have an idea of how much room will be required to safely house it. HO and O scale railways are two of the most common types of models chosen by buyers and builders. O models have a scale ration of 1:48, which equates to 1/48th of an actual-sized locomotive. O models tend to require a large amount of space and are often more expensive than smaller railways, However, because of their size, they’re able to accommodate a fair amount of detail, and are easy for children and adults alike to operate.
HO Model Railways
For buyers looking to purchase a smaller model, yet would still appreciate the opportunity to add plenty of accessories and scenery, an HO scale railway would likely be a good choice. Like O scales, there are a wide variety of accessories and items to add to your custom train layout display’s scenery. HO scales are about half the size of O scales, therefore, children may have difficulty at first learning to operate them. One advantage of choosing an HO scale is the fact that it doesn’t require as much space to be considered realistic. For example, while O scales are larger, without enough space, they can appear as more of a toy set than a model.
The addition of a custom train layout provides fun and entertainment the entire family can enjoy. Larger models, such as an O scale are typically a better choice for children; however, with practice, kids can easily learn to operate small models. Railway display models are also ideal for around the holidays, as they add a seasonal, exciting, and colorful flare to family gatherings during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Whether you would like your layout to be Christmas-themed, or would prefer a something else for a different time of the year, choose a knowledgeable, talented builder for a quality finalized piece.
