This 35 x 56-foot layout features postwar and modern Lionel power pulling impressive trains made up of Atlas O, Golden Gate Depot, Lionel, and MTH cars.

It’s constructed with GarGraves track and Ross Custom Switches controlled by Circuitron and NJ International machines. Scenic highlights include a number of bridges and tunnels, a roundhouse, yard, coal mine, and several water features. The many structures that dot the landscape are scratchbuilt or from Lionel, Menards, and MTH.

Trains run through urban, industrial, and rural scenery as they traverse multiple layers.

One thought on “Taking it easy in O gauge
