New Member Layout Photos

Hello, I am a new member here and thought I would post some photos of my layout and train room. I started building my layout 20-years ago but have not worked on it for about five years.

I hope you enjoy the photographs.

A classic!

That is a beautiful “classic” Lionel train layout! The Plasticville buildings and the three-rail track immediately take me back to my childhood!

Thank you for the comments. I kind of like a mixture of the older Lionel trains and accessories, and the newer items. I bought what I could find and afford.

I can run three trains independently at a time, and along with the whistles going it is almost to loud to talk over. I really like it that way. I also own several sound cars but I seldom use them as I am not sure they could be heard.

You have a very nice layout LionelFan. I really like the center backdrop/access hole. It gives you access to the middle of the layout and the backdrop view block makes the layout seem considerable larger.

I never quite understood what Arlo Guthrie meant by "The passengers will please refrain" until I took Amtrak

I like the layout, but your wall displays are especially impressive! Well done!
