THANK YOU for all the helpful advice! I am still in the learning curve.
I am making a SMALL setup for one grandson, because they think they don't have a lot of room
the other grandson has a BIG clean basement, so I thought I would have some fun!
OK, i have my Lionel trains from my childhood, and access to a local store with LOTS of stock.
1. what is the best and easiest way to set up a nice big train table? sheets of plywood with support legs?? I hope to build this with my nice son in law. size? 5 by 7 feet? they have a good size basement.
I do have a good amount of track, and the supports for a second raised railway. I have 3 locomotives, could get more, some street lamp styled lamps, a tower of lights, a rotating light, etc. I have a Lionel ZW and a KW transformer. I have remote control electric switches from my childhood, etc. As a kid, we used the 2 big handles on the ZW for 2 separate trains, and the 2 other levers for various lights and switches, etc. a very nice setup, my Dad was wonderful!
I think this could be a fun project!!!
I thought we could make a table, and then slowly add the trains to it!
i would love any ideas!
