Running trains on a postwar style Lionel layout

A tinplate layout meant for enjoying toy trains
Name:    Terry Johnson
Forum User Name:    tibet99
Railroad Name:    Lionel Postwar Layout
Location:    Michigan
Scale:    1/48
Theme:    Classic Lionel postwar trains
Description:    I have a decent high rail layout but got the urge recently to run my Lionel postwar trains.
I dug out my Kalmbach book "Classic Lionel Display Layouts You Can Build" by Roger Carp as well as his "Lionel Showroom Layouts".
Seeing those neat vintage layouts reminded me of being a kid and how I enjoyed turning out the lights and just running the trains.
Free from realistic scenery, banked curves and Command control, I sought out to create what might be a typical layout of my dreams as a 10 year old.
I found out those dreams are still active some 50 years later.
In hope you enjoy my 4K video into the past!
