Here is a video of my 6' x 10' Lionel Postwar Layout running fully automated.  4 trains running on 2 mainlines using automatic block control.  1 trolley using automated timed control for 3 stops.

very nice layout Dave.  I know how to block track sections with manual switches, but how do you automate them?

Here is a video of my old 5' x 9' layout that I took down about 3 years ago (we moved).  You can see some of the similarities between this and the new 6' x 10' layout.

Oh wow, that new layout is perfection itself!  I just love the woodwork and especially the control panel set-up!  LOVE those electrical meters as well! 

The train's ain't bad either!

When you've got a winner there's not much sense reinventing everything!  Big Smile
