Hi folks, this christmas my wife decided to open the floodgates and
gave me my first lionel starter set (the Pennsylvania Lionel O-scale
w/fastrack), at the ripe old age of 30. Model rail roading has been
something I always wanted to get into as a kid watching my dad play
with his HO Minitrix set in the basement. I never had the money, space
or the time for it before. Now that I have my own son (4 months old),
the space, and some money I have started visiting hobby shops, train
shows and ebay looking to expand. I have also started surfing for
information on some questions I have about O scale railing, but cant
find the answer to them.
1. Since I have Lionel, will other O-scale 3 rail brands work on this
track(Rail king, Williams)? or vice versa? I've seen something about
that but am not sure. What brands do if any?
2. I assume the couplers for train cars are different for each brand
is that correct? or will they work together?
3. Can I use other track brands with my Lionel set?
Thanks in advance. I hope to start a small layout in the next few
months as time permits.
