About OO Gauge
OO Gauge railway sets are still the most popular scale for collectors in Great Britain, so youll find plenty of trains to get travelling on your tracks. Beginning in 1921, OO gauge models are scaled at 4mm to the foot (or 1:76) and run on a 16.5mm track.
If youre looking for a piece of history or have a favourite train from Britains heritage, look for replica models. Take the Flying Scotsman for instance, the iconic steam train that still nips out for tours and trips today.
A famous piece of British locomotive history, you can pick OO Gauge models of the well-loved train from several brands including Hornby. Other famous classics include the Mallard, Duchess, Britannia and Pullman, or keep an eye out for family favourite Thomas the Tank Engine. Although not a replica, hes a representative piece of the childhood classic.
If youre into something a little more modern, look out for contemporary pieces from London Midland and Virgin trains to everyday freight trains.
When youre searching for quality trains that fit your track, youre best off sticking to trusted brand names.
Often collectors of British trains prefer to stick to the British brands that product model railways and trains. The two famous British brands are Hornby and Bachmann Branchline.
One of the most famous and longest-running companies is Hornby Railways, the British company that dates back to 1901. Or, check out Bachmann Branchline, a British sub-brand of the US Bachmann company that dates all the way back to 1835.
Other favourites include the Italian brands ViTrains (Vi for Vicenza) and Lima, Tri-ang Railways, who are a part of Line Bros, or Danish company Heljan.
