Question by Chris DP. S: Are HO scale model trains best?
Looking to get into model trains, just want to know if HO scale is best because I hear it’s the most popular
Answer by Stargazer
I don’t know if ‘best’ i s the right answer. It is certainly the most popular, and has had huge staying power. Back in the 50’s my father-in-law built an entire layout from Lionell for the City of Rochester. That layout and those trains are still running more than 60 years later. So, if you are looking for a long term hobby – something that can last generations – seriously consider HO scale. By the way – it is pretty good size, so you do do need a bit of room for an interesting layout.
