Thank you very much Rusty and Troy for answering my questions. I sincerely appreciate it. It seems Lee is correct in stating that there really isn't a large space savings in S scale when it comes to the curves (if one likes broad curves). Troy mentioned 45-50"R curves and I was going to use 54"R for my 2R O scale layout. Yes I could fit 2-10-2s on the S scale side and not fit them on the O scale side. Yes, it is a lot to think about. Thanks again for your help.
I thought the AM Trainmaster was awesome. Definitely good enough for me. As I said I am no rivet counter. If I go to S scale I hope I can find one.
I've never heard of Tomalco. I will have to check them out. I hope they have a website.
BTW, I was checking the website for AAA Turntables and I found out that they do list a S scale TT. The website shows a price of around $1K which is slightly less than what I paid for my 32" Millhouse River TT. However, I am not sure if other add on items are needed which are not included in that price. Anyway, just wanted to mention that there is at least one TT available for S scale. Thanks again guys. [Just now saw Bradys reply.] Thank you Brady for the link to the TT.
Phil, I've been finding out that everything just seems to "fit" with S that used to really make me struggle in O. Granted I like pullmans and big steam, but really, for those models, I find that 54R is just your minimum. When you make a change to S, now, your minimum is about 40R-42R and that 54R makes everything spread out nicely.
Also, I'm just now finnishing up selling off my O scale and so far, it has gone better than I thought it would. All I can say is be patient and be willing to answer ALOT of basic questions like: "Will the Lionel train you are selling run on Gar Graves track?" and I think you will be happy with the return you get on your stuff. I've found that there are manny more people out there bying trains than I was aware of and if you help them, they will buy your stuff and generally pay your price.
