I really hate to admit it but for the life of me I can't figure out how to attach my track to my old Lionel 110 trestle "risers"; even worse I have the original instructions and still can't figure it out.

I checked utube and find no help there....

thanks

Do you have the clips?

O27 and O gage attach differently,

In short a piece slides into the trestle, the track is added and a clip is screwed down from the top. 027 uses a long clip with a screw in the center and O uses a smaller roundish clip like a hexagon.

well, I think I figured it out thanks.....one screw on the diagonal from each other per adjoining track into the clip..I guess I thought the contact between the track and the trestle would be a bit more substantial but it seems ok; at any rate it'll just have to do as I move on to the next mystery as I continue to bring back to life my 70 year old set.....
