 It took me awhile, but I finally figured out that if I lift the factory above the N scale tracks, it would open up a lot of space in the center section

 The original supports for the elevated track were not used, but have come in handy now

Thumbs Up

Like that Pennsy tender from a #250. The 250 was my first Lionel train. Still have it.

Regards, Roy

well, thank you !

My first 2025 was complete, with tender and box. I loved it so much, I bought a second 2025 at the train show, but it was A La Carte ( no tender). So, I found this tender at my old train store. It was a perfect fit !!

I wouldn't say that house is haunted either, but it certainly has a rather unique second-floor tenant!

I'll betcha there's not going to be any burglaries in that place!

"Frank" stands at the door to the train room to greet guests, check I.D.s , and remove the unruly.

Like some of those bouncers back in the Disco days...

one guy had a face covered with scars, and a nose that looked like it was broken more than once...

And with that, I plan to take advantage of the cooler weather, and start setting up the Garden railroad,

 

 

 so, I'll be switching gears for a while...

 A lot of this old track will have to be rehabbed before it can be used...
