Evolution of an Action Packed Fifties Era 027 Operating Layout

Tom  

Thanks.  I still have a few more posts and up updates for later.  It is winter and after Christmas I usually get a few train projects going since I do not have much yard work to do. Although you would think spring was here in south Louisiana as Azaleas are booming and weeds start to grow with this warm winter. 

Working on reviving a junker 192 Control Tower, having to make a roof and the moving platform that the CT operators ride around on.

I just glued some washers with GE silicone caulking to the top of the canisters.  The stick just fine but will do no harm and are easy to take off.

I decided  the Lionel 60 street car was too big for my S gauge Plasticville main street.  The 60 has joined my fleet of 50 gang cars  (2 --50s and one MTH) in racing around the layout or going bump to bump between the portable track barriers.

Latest addition to the layout is a junker Lionel 192 Control Tower.  I bought it several years ago and would have to check my train procurement list as to where and when.  I find keeping a list really helps as I have been into this layout and trains for over 30 years.

It was missing the roof and roof details, and the rotating part that holds the operators all of which I got to make.  I added a switch for the lights and one for the rotating operators on the control panel.

Charlie, Very nice and very organized of you, if you put everything on your list. I have enough trouble keeping track of when/when my locomotives came from. I see the ice station in the background. I forgot if you ever said how many operating accessories you have on your layout?
