Hi all!
I have put myself in a bit of a problem...
The cost of HOn3 is skyrocketing due to the loss of Blackstone's manufacturing.
I mean $850 for a locomotive and over $100 for a boxcar....
As it happens I'm the lucky guy that's going to sell off a huge On30 collection, and I'm going to get some of those for myself.
So, should I liquidate my HOn3 layout and go all O scale?
I have 12 HOn3 locomotives and a lot of cars.
The On30 material is way cheaper and a lot easier to make run good....
I really don't know....

I vote for On30 if you have room to do what you want to do.

From my perspective, it would depend a lot on what I wanted to model in narrow gauge. On30 goes around tight curves, but you'll have room for fewer cars. And substantial structures take up a lot of room in O.
