I have been an occasional lurker on this site, though I currently model in HO scale. However, I anticipate switching to hi-rail O gauge in a couple of years. I have slowly been buying stuff I like, and read the odd O-gauge magazines, but can't say I am familiar with the scene.
I see lots of stuff I like at train shows, but then I go home and forget it. I would also like to know what has been made over the past 15-20 years by all the big manufacturers (Lionel, MTH, K-Line, Atlas O, Williams, WBB, etc). Does anyone publish a guide listing stuff that has come out? It doesn't necessarily have to list value, but engine or car types, road numbers, item numbers, and perhaps year produced would be really helpful.
PS: this is my first post, so if it is in the wrong place I appologize.
