  1. I have had my Lionel trains safely in their boxes for fifty years. I am totally overwhelmed with the new toy train features and types. I want to incorporate my older trains with the new stuff that is out there, but have no idea where to start.

  2. Excellent article. Used track can be an excellent bargain if you are careful. The appearance of tubular track can be much improved by inserting homemade ties in the intervals between the steel ties. After fifty + years of experience with 3 rail, prototype actually looks odd to me so I have no problem with the third rail. Also, I have successfully used adapter pins between several types of 3r O gauge although nothing more modern than 1980’s design.
