I have constructed a 9-foot by 6-foot layout shown below. The layout comprises an outer loop and an inner loop with a 90-deg crossing. The two loops have a commmon portion on the near end of the table. A railroad yard with several accessories is accessed in the inner loop. And a siding is also accessed in the inner loop. Both loops have tunnels under the mountain at the far corner of the table.
The top of the mountain has a single oval loop that has a tunnel. On top of the mountain is a Lionel air surveillance radar and a Lionel radio station. A Lionel No. 60 trolley travels from the flat land up to the oval loop and is similar to an inclined railway.

On two sides of the table are shelves to hold the rolling stock and engines. These shelves are hinged to provide access for storage of boxes and equipment underneath the table. One of the hinged shleves is shown below.

Below is an overhead picture of the entire layout.

Below are other views of the train layout.

Below is a picture of the layout in the construction stage showing the major supporting structures before all of the scenery was complete.


Below are links to videos I have taken to show the train layout in action.Click on the text to view the video.

The video below shows the Lionel No. 3469 coal dump car dumping coal into the bin of the Lionel No. 397 coal loader and the coal loader using the conveyor belt to fill the coal car with coal.

Lionel No.3469 Dump Car and No.397 Coal Loader

The video below shows the spout of the Lionel No. 30 water tower lowering to fill the Lionel No. 6466W Tender with "water."

Lionel No.30 Water Tower

The video below shows the Lionel No. 60 trolley ascending the mountain and reversing to return to its initial point. The trolley will repeat this action until power is removed from the track. Note the Lionel. No. 155 signal rings a bell and its two red lights alternately blink when the trolley leaves its starting point and the trolly returns.

Lionel No.60 Trolley and No 155 Ringing Signal

The video below shows the Lionel No. 140 banjo arm swinging across its red light and the Lionel No 252 crossing gate descends when the train passes across the road crossing. Although this video shows a train on only one of the two sets of track, the signal and gate activae when a train is on either sets of track.

Lionel No.140 Banjo Signal and No.252 Crossing Gate

The video below shows the light atop the Lionel No. 193 industrial water tower blinking.

Lionel No.193 Industrial Water Tower

The video below shows the Lionel No. 197 radar antenna rotating and the light atop the Lionel No. 6-632991 radio station antenna blinking. I have this action controlled by a switch so I can turn these accessories on and off as desired. The switch also activates the Lionel No. 3530 Operating Generator Car and Lionel No. 64 lamp post on the mountain.

Lionel No.197 Radar and No.6-632991 WLLC Radio Station

The video below shows the Lionel No. 252 and No. 077 crossing gates activated when the train passes across the road crossing. Although this video shows a train on only one of the two sets of track, both gates activae when a train is on either sets of track.

Lionel No.252 and 077 Crossing Gates

The video below shows the Lionel No. 252 and No. 077 crossing gates and the Lionel No. 445 switch tower activated when a train approaches. The switch tower is activated by an insulated track section before the Lionel 022 switch and the gates are activated by insulated track sections near the road crossing.

The video below shows the Lionel No. 342 culver loader in action loading metal culverts onto its assocated car.

The video below shows the attendant of the Lionel No. 352 icing station loading ice cubes into the associated Lionel No.6352 Pacific Express refrigerator car.

The video below shows the pump of the Lionel No. 455 oil derrick operating. If the derrick runs long enough, the oil in the lighted tube will warm up and begin to bubble.

Lionel No.455 Oil Derrick and Pump

The video below shows the Lionel No. 1045 flagman raise his arm with a flag when the train passes over the insulated track section that also activates the Lionel No 445 switch tower. Because the flagman is so much oversized, I do not have it on the train table - it is sitting on the shelves below he surface of the train table.

Lionel No.1045 Flagman

The video below shows the Lionel No 1872 General Train in action and the Lionel no. 151 semapore activate when the train enters the tunnel.

Lionel No.1872 General Train and No.151 Semaphore

The video below shows the Lionel No. 3472 milk car unload milk cans on the platform. This is one of the classic Lionel operating cars.

Lionel No.3472 Milk Car

The video below shows the American Flyer No.728 "Sam the Semaphore Man" in action. When a button is pressed, Sam comes out of his shack, the semaphore arm points horizontal, the light on the semaphore pole turns from green to red, and the train stops as long as the button is held. When the button is released, Sam retreats into his shack, the semaphore arm raises, the light turns to green, and the train continues on its way. I connected this accessory to the insulated track section a bit differently than you would when using an Americal Flyer train because Lionel is a 3-rail track system as opposed to a 2-rail track system. And I had to reduce the internal resistor by approximately 1/2 (I paralled a resistor across the extant resistor) for the accessory to hold the engine E-unit on so the E-unit would not cycle during the temporaty stop.

American Flyer No.728 Sam the Semaphore Man

The video below shows the Lionel No. 3461 log dump car in action.

Lionel No.3461 Automatic Lumber Car

The video below shows the Lionel No. 335955 dual dump car in action. This car dumps the two bins in sequence by repeatedly pressing the special track section unload button.

Lionel No.3359 Twin Bin Dump Car

The video below shows the Lionel No. 356275 barrel car unloading barrels. The barrels are unloaded by a vibrating ramp on the car that is activiated by pressing the special track section unload button.

Lionel No.3562 Operating Barrel Car

The video below shows the Lionel No. 3361 log dump car unloading logs. This car dumps logs by repeatedly pressing the special track section unload button.

Lionel No.3361 Log Dump Car

Earlier, I constructed a small 3 1/2 foot by 5 foot "portable" layout. I constructed it from ceiling tile and 1x4 lumber. When not in use, the layout will fit under a bed. Below is a picure of that layout.

Train Layout
The layout contains one oval loop and a short linear track inside the loop with bumpers on each end. This track can run the two reversing motorized units that I have.

Most of the items shown are Lionel. However, there are two Marx train items in the picture. Can you spot the Marx items? How many Lionel items can you identify? All of the items on the layout are described in detail on my Lionel Toy Train page that you can access below.

Christmas Day

Below is a picture of me on Christmas Day (1959, I believe) playing with the Lionel 2191W outfit.
