Model Trains (Scale = 1:48)
Manual Train Operation
Any train stored in one of the sidings on either the lower or upper level can be activated and moved onto the main tracks and run manually by controlling the speed on each track section and switching either Switch Track 1, 2, 3, or 4. Alternatively, engines and cabooses stored in F1 - F4 can be activated and moved onto the main tracks where cars from the display case can be used to make up a full train. Full trains in the display case can also be placed on the main tracks or, engines, cabooses and freight cars can be retrieved from the display case and placed on the main tracks as a full train.
Model Train Videos
During these videos, traina run automatically on routes determined by the settings of switches controlling switch tracks, blocks, relays, and number of trains on main layout. Freight [F], Passenger [P], and Work [W]
