the problem is that there is of course traditional and semi-scale O which is more like 1:64 and actual O scale 1:48.
I am wondering if anyone knows if the Williams Crown Edition locomotives are actual O scale before I buy it. I suppose I could ask for dimensions, but just an overall length does nto tell you about any 'selective compression'.

I will bet that Williams' locos are 1:48 scale. They are more concerned with a quality product that interests "scale" dudes. Lionel is about the only tinplate (3 rail) products that were sold as "O" but were more "S". Anybody else know of another?
so far everything I have found has confirmed that. I posted over at OGR this morning and everyone is confirming that the Crown Edition line is all scale. they might be lacking a bit of detail (that can be added if one wishes), but they are brass and probably perfect for an outdoor layout. Williams did have other stuff that was semi-scale; it seems Crown Edition is somewhat equivalent to MTH Premier.
FWIW, I have an Atlas Atlantic that is traditional/semi-scale. If you recall the scale comparison photo I posted a couple months back it was the same size as an AF Atlantic.
