The 4 times is wrong it's 8 times you have to take the cube. I think for a given space O can be cheaper than OO as you need less. A quite interesting layout can be laid out with say three points and about 4/5 yards of track. Add a class 08 at £275 plus say 10 wagons at £25 for kits (easy to assemble no need for RTR) and you have a workable layout for say £600 pounds. I've seen OO layouts smaller that cost over £1000 in stock alone, so O can be easily within the pocket of most modellers. Make all from kits and its even cheaper, unless you go for all large locos where the cost will be £500 plus each for Kit, wheels & motor/gears.

A trip to Guildex at Telford would open a lot of peoples eyes as to how much is available at affordable prices, plus the size of layouts varies from massive (Holiday Haunts) to small (Wye Forest) to name but two.

If you want detail, slow running and to make it yourself its got to be GAUGE O !
