Brendan: Right you are!  I was just wondering if OO would stand a chance today.  Much like TT, almost forgotten.

TT is fairly active in Europe.  Roco, Tillig, Piko and Arnold to name a few are producing European TT.

As a long time N-scaler, I have to wonder why TT-scale didn't take hold and flourish here in America.  Had it done so, I would have undoubtedly been into it big time.  At 1/120 scale, it is almost exactly half way between N-scale and HO scale.  It would be an excellent compromise to allow both small and large prototype model trains in a compact space.

OO scale is far too close to HO scale to be viable for a manufacturer to pick it up today.  Not sure why OO scale didn't take off, I saw some at the toy train museum in Strassburg several years ago while on vacation, and thought it was pretty neat.

If S-scale was more abundant and widely available, I might almost seriously consider it instead of O-gauge.  But at this point in my life, I guess I will stick with O-gauge.  Still not as great a variety in motive power and rolling stock as I'd like to see, but I guess I can live with what's out there.  Barely.

Well, that's MY givens and druthers, yours may vary (insert emoji of 'booger-picking guy with finger up nose' here).
