TRADITIONAL VS. O-SCALE
Lionel O-Gauge locomotives and rolling stock are divided into two basic categories—Traditional and O-Scale. Both lines are O-Gauge and can be run together if Minimum Curve requirements allow. Generally, the difference is a matter of size and consistent proportions. O-Scale locomotives and cars are kept as close to scale dimensions as practical. Traditional O locomotives and cars may be compressed to better operate on tight curves.

RECOMMENDED MINIMUM CURVE
Lionel locomotives and rolling stock are thoroughly tested to determine their Minimum Curve requirement. In some cases, a Lionel car or locomotive may be able to easily negotiate most, but not all, possible track configurations for that Minimum Curve. For these products, a Recommended Minimum Curve is also given. This larger measurement allows for all combinations of Lionel track and switches
