    What is the difference between these ? Are they both HO.
    The peco sl100x says HO/OO on the box ?

    Thanks

    HO/OO is a designation that really means HO. In England, it is used for OO scale models, but isn't quite right.
    I can't find SL100X inthe Peco catalog. SL100 is the basic Peco track; SL100F is the fine-scal code 75; SL8300 is the code 83 "American" style.
    SL102 is concrete sleepers (ties). SL100B is concrete sleeper, brass rail; SL100GS is galvanised steel. Aboid the last 2 if you see them.

    Yep, HO and OO have exactly the same track gauge. A lot of people over here in Blighty will have you believe that HO and OO are one and the same, but it's only when it comes to the tracks. Everything else is different!
    I'm not too sure about SL100X either. I'll have to go away and look for my Peco price list and tell you about it.
