Re: Timesaver in O Scale

John Hagen


The video of Gregory is vey neat. Thanks for posting.

Reminds me that I also used a circle of the sharp radius Atlas track around the Christmas tree. It sat atop a table but the Atlas track allowed me to run my Atlas F9 and a couple of cars. More impressive than HO or Lionel.

I have noticed a few typos in my explanation of the table. The center section was 4 ft and I used 2 sets of legs.

There are others but these would be the most confusing.

That is great John!


The larger gauges are great for kids, I was thinking of building a G scale timesaver with LGB track but even used those switches run $50 each!


Gets me thinking: I have about 10 of those old O scale Atlas switches and a couple Plymouth’s, I ought to try that. And the regearing is a great idea! Here is one of the last times I ran mine, Gregory here is now 15, six feet tall and knows it all....
