Gauge is the width of the track. Trains must fit the track to run on it.
Most Lionel trains run on either O gauge and O-27 gauge. Only the Large Scale Holiday express Christmas Train runs on a larger track(G Guage).S Guage is another size, but it is referred to as American Flyer.
All O-27 gauge cars and locomotives will work on O gauge track. The longer O guage locomotives and cars will not run on O-27 guage because the turns are tighter.
Gauge is the distance between the outside rails of your track. The middle rail is where your trains gets the power. Both O and O-27 measure a distance of 1 1/4" between the rails. Most ready to run Lionel trains sets sold today come with Fastrack which is O-27 guage.
Lionel O gauge track comes in wider curves for bigger trains and layouts. The smallest circle it can make is 31 inches in diameter. O gauge also has a slightly taller profile for deeper wheel flanges. Lionel O gauge is designed to fit virtually all Lionel locomotives and rolling stock, including scale-proportioned pieces. Some larger Lionels will run only on O gauge track.
