Trains Lionel

Which brand is the most popular at Model Trains and sets?

Is Lionel any good?

There are two types of model railroading: scale modeling and toy trains.

Lionel is considered a toy train because it does not accurately represent to scale the actual prototype. Toy trains use a 3 rail AC power system. Lionel is the leading toy train manufacturer.

Scale modeling consists of O, HO, G, N and Z scales, as well as a few other oddball scales. Scale modeling uses a two rail DC or DCC power system. Leading manufacturers are Kato, Atlas, Bachmann, and Atherton.

G-scale is designed for outdoor garden railroads and LGB is the leading manufacturer.

HO is the most popular scale. It represents a ratio of 1:87, which means one inch on the model represents 87 inches on the real thing. This link explains the different scales:
