By Robert Schleicher. As model railroaders began demanding ever-greater realism, Lionel responded in 2004 with its FasTrack system featuring an integrated roadbed, scale-sized ties, and a less-obvious center rail. This guide gives a deeper sense of how to take advantage of the FasTrack’s ease of use and unprecedented realism in large-scale model railroading. Includes 150 color photos and track diagrams for 10 layouts ranging from 6x6 foot to an 11x30 foot scale size empire and instructions for building tables to support layouts and advice for creating scenery.
