    O Gauge BASSETT-LOWKE

    We have a very limited number of the following Bassett-Lowke 'O' gauge models. These locomotives are top quality items for the discerning collector. We also carry Peco O gauge track to suit.

    HO/OO Train Sets including Digital Sets

    We stock a very large range of electric train sets. All sets come with mains transformer that reduces the power to a safe 12-15Volts. They come with an engine and rolling stock as well as track.

    They can all be added onto and we will give you a FREE DVD that shows how to make scenery and add onto your layout.

    HO/OO track is 16.5mm wide. HO gauge is 1:87 and OO gauge is 1:76 - both scales use exactly the same gauge track There is very little difference between the two to the naked eye. N gauge track is 9mm wide and the scale is 1:160. HO/OO scale is the most popular.

    PLEASE NOTE : HO/OO GAUGE FLEXIBLE TRACK PER 900MM SECTION CAN BE USED TO EASILY INCREASE THE SIZE OF ALL SETS.
