Group Description

This group is for fans of "0" & "027" toy trains with a focus on Lionel "Super O" track . Lionel offered "Super O" from 1957 through 1966. Many view "Super O" as the most realistic track system ever.

Some of the topics covered are: how has "Super O" stood the test of time; #112 vs #112R switches; different types of operating rails; cleaning "Super O"; #43 power connectors vs #61 (ground)& #62 (power lockons); insulated sections and "roller wear". Issue or not? Not to mention all Lionel Postwar questions.

All "Super O" components are available for this 50 year old track system. The major components include:

1. Curves (#31)
2. Straights (#32)
3. 1/2 Curves (#33)
4. 1/2 Straights (#34)
5. Remote Control Set (#36)

23. Rudley's Track Layouts for Lionel "Super O"

There are a number of outstanding "Super O" layouts and it is my hope that pictures will be posted. The largest I have seen is a 15' by 30' recreation of the 1957 Lionel "Super O" factory layout. There are a number of outstanding smaller layouts I have also been privileged to see.

Lets hear your questions, comments and thoughts about this intriguing track system that has captured the imagination of many. Why not come along for the journey?
