I've noticed it harder to determine which is which. Since 99.832180% of any buying I do is online, it seems harder to tell before ordering.
Is it intentionally meant to be difficult? The only thing that seems to be constant is on Lionel's website. For rolling stock, I look up minimum curve of 027 or 031. Assuming that traditional would be 027 and scale would be 031. Is that an accurate way to tell and is it the best way to tell or is there another key to the code?
I'm speaking of 3-rail, O gauge.
Thanks in advance.
PS: But the I found a Lionscale Christmas caboose that has 027 min curve, so that seems to disprove my idea.
