The train we have is a Lionel O-Gauge on Easy Track and the platform is 8X4. It is a figure 8 track and the transformer is basic with a bell and whistle.(the bell no longer works). I am looking into upgrading the transformer as I have a suspicion that there is one out there that would make this process easier. I want to have a push button that the kids with limited range of motion can press to activate the train. That is my main goal. Then I would like to figure out some scenery type things like a railroad crossing that can be activated with a button and other animated scenery.
