Overview

Responding to a demand among hobbyists for greater realism, Lionel in 2004 introduced FasTrack, featuring an integrated roadbed, scale-sized ties, and a less-obvious center rail. Here, veteran hobby author Robert Schleicher gives modelers a deeper sense of how to take advantage of FasTrack’s revolutionary ease of use and unprecedented realism in large-scale model railroading. The book includes more than 100 color photos, along with diagrams of ten FasTrack layouts from around the United States, ranging from a modular setup to an 11x30 scale-size empire. Schleicher also provides instructions for building tables to support the layouts, wiring for Lionel control systems, and creating both rural and urban scenery. An appendix of recommended suppliers rounds out this essential guide for the modern Lionel train enthusiast.
