    no wiring needed at all, just your track power, put your track together and run your train. you dont need all that wiring with 3 rails, like you do with HO or N scale.

    Yep, that is the nice thing about having the third rail, or overhead wire. I know of a club (in Dallas, TX) that has a working overhead wire in O scale and they have one loop on each end of the layout.
