Answer by Trainchaser
I got started back when I was 3 years old. My dad would take me out quite often to see the Amtrak train run through town. I can’t really describe what it is about trains that I love, just that it’s big machines moving America. And railroads are an ingenious, yet simple concept.

I mainly take pictures, about 5,000 photos to date. Not many compared to many railfans.

Mostly it has to do with size but also different designations in different parts of the world. All are motor driven, operable on tracks. O is the size of Lionel and American Flyer in the US, popular about the time of WWII and ten years after. Track width is about 2″. HO is half O and is intended for smaller layouts, track width is about 1″. N is smaller and for the same reason of layout size. G goes in the other direction and to my eye is about 3 times O and is Garden – lines intended to be used outdoors, so bigger scale. There are larger ones in real steam and different european sizes.
Actually, the ones that come up on Antiques Roadshow most often are not the operating trains at all, but the cast iron and stamped sheet metal play toys of 1890-1920 which are 4 to 6 inches tall.
