Once you get your first O gauge train set you imagine hours of enjoyment hauling freight across the country behind a smoking locomotive.

Add a couple more curves and a crossing, and you now have a figure 8. As your train runs around this track it seems to reverse itself, and crosses back and forth. Interesting for a bit longer, but still it loses its luster after a while.

For us, that's half the fun of O Gauge model railroading: trying to plan what to do next to make your layout even more interesting. And, there's a lot of accessories to choose from. Lionel, MTH, Atlas, and many other companies manufacture accessories ranging from buildings to create an urban environment to operating accessories that can add the action of unloading and loading train cars on your railroad.
