Renovation and Installaion of Lionel 192 Control Tower
Latest addition to the layout is a junker Lionel 192 Control Tower. My train show Buy list shows I bought it in 2004 at a train show in Fairhope, AL for $3. I find that keeping a list really helps as I have been into this layout and trains for over 44 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.
New support for walking men and new men ( ex policemen!)
New roof made with vent and weather instruments.
