    So is your layout floor level? If so how do you get under to wire it?
    Oh yeah I like the track plan and the begining of the mountain, looks pretty neat.

    nah its chipboard, raised up about an inch for all the electronics, but as the loft floor is chipboard too it kinda blends in lol

    Very interesting indeed. OO is an older scale --- most manufacturers of OO made their stuff from the 1930's to the 1960's. If you're going to model in OO, I would suppose that you have to be willing to search the planet for antique equipment, and do a helluva lot of scratchbuilding.

    Incidentally, if you want a good overview of OO, click here.

    OO is the usual scale for British models running on 16.5mm track. They've been doing it since the 1930s, and there's so much stuff there that it's unlikely they'll change. Some people have been trying to switch to wider track gauges, but the major manufacturers aren't helping. There are a few people modelling in true HO.
