Desperately in need of HELP with completing layout design. New to Lionel Fastrack & o gauge

Good Morning All, My name is Anthony and I am working on customizing an o gauge fastrack layout I found online.

Programmable code interactivity on layouts

This is freakin' cool.

O- Gauge, battery powered lighting kits

Mike Wyatt ·
I wanted no-flicker lighting in my Lionel Aluminum Congressional cars. After looking for a way- I happened upon "Dr. Bob's" kits- he sells a variety of kits that are marketed (mostly) for the smaller scales- N, HO, and (some) O. I bought the S/O constant lighting kit. Not being an electronic guru- and since Radio Shack is no longer available to me- buying such a kit was better for me. I was sold fully after I saw what the kits included.

"heritage operations" - running standard gauge to its limits

I don't post often because this community enjoys discourse far ranging enough that I usually can find answers from past threads. However, this time I'm reaching out into the community for an answer: Too often, I see videos of layouts that have been "wired for ease of operations." One train per track, just going around in circles. This seems to be the wrote fate of too many originally spec'd Standard Gauge trains. My question is, who indulges in something more?

Re: Train layout - next step after Figure 8 for children's train around tree?

Manual switches are cheaper but it is still a lot of coin flowing out at one time for only being used for a short time during the year. I had trouble justifying the expense with my wife. Also, I got kicked out from under the tree but we have a spare room for storage and kids' use in the basement I got permission to take over so that worked to my benefit. In a previous year, got a couple of folding picnic tables and kicked the car out of the garage for a month. Like you I was looking to do...

Eric, The NH coil car is brand new in the original box. The PRR coil car is used in the original box. I'm going to rate the PRR as excellent because something is on the coil cover. It almost looks like the paint ran, but it might be glue that was dripped on the car. I would take less for it because of this if you're interested. Thanks, Brad
