I want to incorporate a Lionel 497 coaling station on my postwar Lionel layout. I want to put the coaling station on my main line which means all of my engines and train cars will need to fit under the coaling station. Has anyone else done this? What are the dimensions of the area under the coaling station?

Thanks!

4 inches from the top of the outside rail to the bottom of the dump mechanism. 1-7/16 from the center rail to the outside upright supports. Depending on what you’re running, you may find the lateral dimension more limiting.
