The new game in town is called 3-Rail O Scale, and it features O scale couplers and diesels with fixed pilots.

Manufacturers are in on the action. They are either producing 3-Rail O Scale products, or have made new items 3-Rail O Scale ready, enabling an easier transition to scale couplers, etc.

We make a return visit to Norm Charbonneau, a hobby Super Star in weathering and scenery. Norm has created a new, larger layout that shows how he converted to scale Kadee couplers and fixed pilots.

Next we visit the Hi-Rail Modular Train Club in Griffith, IN. They have installed their permanent layout, and added a large storage yard for their members' fleet of realistic trains, many of which are 3-Rail O Scale.

18 different trains - steam and diesel, freight and passenger - pass through rural and industrial areas on a three-track mainline.

Both Norm and the Griffith hi-railers use only modern command control operating systems to run their trains. The effect is viewing long, handsome consists with realistic sounds running through beautiful scenery.

Whether your area of interest is in O gauge realism or toy trains - or you just enjoy watching a wide variety of scale trains in action - TM's new series will provide you a close look at today's most realistic model railroads in action.

3-rail o scale trains is a new video tm has made this video shows the model train hobby has been looking into more realistic than what the hi-rail layout offers two layouts featured are in this video first is the layout of norm charbonneau (who was fetured in both the lionel nation series and the world class hi-rail layout series) with having a more realistic look next is the hi-rail modular train club in the town of griffith Indiana with a layout they installed 18 different trains powered by both steam and diesel locomotives on both freight and passenger trains if you're looking into make a more realistic look for your layout or just like watch trains than you'll get a lot out of this video
