    Hello everyone. I've got a Lionel NYC 4-6-4 Hudson 6-18082 I bought in 99. I'm making a new layout. My question is what size should this engine be pulling? It is a min 31" radius engine, but not sure if I should use Traditional or Standard O. Is the Standard O much bigger or just more detailed. Thanks guys. Oh... any ideas or resources on making a nice layout on 4x8 would be great. OMG.... I just got the new NYC Gang Car and my 3 Y/O is going nuts. He loves it.

    Check out the "All Gauge" railroad website. Lots of layouts for O-Gauge on 4x8 and 5x10 boards.
