I finally got the grandsons first train table built using the Lionel Train table as a design, mine is considerably less expensive and the legs are capable of growing along with my grandson.  Still working on the finishing touches and painting, but I had to lay down the 048 loop for a test run.  I'm using Ken's track plan from his layout book here on O gauge.  Got my original Lionel Scout (1950) running on the first loop.  It's been over fifty years since it last ran loops on tubular track on the living room floor.

quick Question :  what is the size of your table ?

The attached SCARM (file is PDF) layout also details my table top.  The under side is a couple of fancy adjustable saw horses with laminated 1x4's running lengthwise.  Will try and get a couple of photo's later.  I am going to be running two trains and will be adding blocks etc. in the next drawing update

Continuing saga of the Lionel Train table homemade layout.  I cheaped out and bought two pair of 0-60 remote switches and of course ran into a small electrical problem with on the switches and was wondering if anyone else has seen this.  Center rail did not have conductivity end to end between all three points.  I took the bottom off and checked the wiring as recommended in a post, no luck.  

Turned out to be some melted plastic under on of the tabs/buss plates for the big center rail.  A bit of scraping and solder and all it well, works great now.  Is this a known problem with fastrack?IMG_3903
