I'm only a little into model railroading, but I wanted to display some of my O-scale Lionel set. This set (not all of it is pictured) has been a hand-me-down from generations in my family, and I recently purchased an amfleet car (these are hard to find at an affordable price) to put on it as well.

I know that O scale is not that common any more, but still wanted to share.

Very cool. I had an O gauge setup at my former house before down sizing. My builder handled all the bench work. My bonus room was 300 sq feet and most of it was the layout. 2 tracks. One was Amtrak and the other freight. Took a year to get it all done making the buildings, trees, landscape etc. The wiring was the hardest ( no talent along those lines ). I do miss it. Still have everything ( except the room ) and set up basic layout in my townhouse living room over Christmas. Enjoy you model railroad!

Thank you @Sauve850 and @Ziv !

Yeah, the wiring for O gauge can be a pain. That was cool about the 300sqft room of track though.
 
This post has been a few months in the making. Recently, my old locomotive (featured in my original post here) bit the dust and I had to get a new locomotive. There was a train show a few months back here in Columbus and I got a pretty sweet deal on an MTH F59PHI O-scale loco (keeping the Pacific Surfliner livery), but it needed some work. I got the capacitor battery replaced in it and a few other things and also just recently moved my train set to a new host location (my current house does not have space) and I wanted to show off the new locomotive.

For the moment, it is only hauling one car behind as it struggles to do two (possibly because my track is very old) and I wanted to showcase it here with my O-scale amfleet car. I'm continuing to work on the layout here and there as this is a work in progress (I know, not as much detail as the detail in my original post).
