Testers also known as test sets are the kings of Service Station tools. Like their vast line of transformers, Lionel also had a variety of testers. These were designed for the repairman to test the various operating features of many locomotives and rolling stock. Inside the case was a small transformer. On top was a short line of track. The track included remote control sections for testing operating cars and operating couplers. The testers also featured an AC voltmeter which gave the repairman a good idea of an item’s operating power range.
E-unit Repair Tools There were two basic repair tools for the mechanical E-unit. The first was the ST Spreader. One end was wider which enabled the repairman to spread the metal sides of the E-unit that held the rotating drum in place. On the other end was a hook which made replacing the drum and turning it much easier by hand. The ST Vise was used to hold the E-unit.

For these couplers to work well, they need to be mounted to the car body and NOT the truck wheel set. Most derailing problems occur because of the pulling on the couplers. This occurs mostly when pulling longer trains or trying to back up a train through a turnout switch or on a curve. Was the track on board or the foam. If on foam, how did you attach and stabilize?
The Lionel operators dont have that problem because the center rail is always the power rail.
At Your Approved Service. by Joseph Stachler There was a time, when the vast majority of operators of Lionel trains, used Approved Service Stations to get trains repaired.
It was a Southern steam engine and tender, with a consist of 4 cars hopper, gondola, flatcar, and caboose. The track was a simple figure eight, that could also be arranged in an oval. I played and played and played with that train, with adventures fueled by my imagination. I use to dream of expanding it into a larger layout, but lack of money and living in a small town that didn’t have hobby stores pretty much nipped that dream in the bud.
But that didn’t stop me from having fun. I built tunnels and trestles for my simple track. I had a pretty good supply of plastic cowboys, Indians, and horses. I can’t count how many times that train got robbed.

How and where can I sell my trains? Another popular place is eBay which is an auction site and quite extensive but comes with costs associated with selling them. There are also national auction companies that specialize in selling trains. These national companies primarily deal in highly collectible trains and average run of the mill trains are of little interest to them, however.
Q: What kind of track is best for my Lionel trains? A: Lionel trains run on 3-rail O gauge track. In recent years Lionel has introduced a new line of track called FasTrack.
People often ask ‘why don’t they make things like they did in the old days’? Well, Lionel does, and has been for over years. Forward-Neutral- Reverse Only Lionel, K-line and MTH O and O gauge trains have a forward, neutral and reverse system allowing the use of operating milk cars, log dump cars, coal dump cars and many other accessories while the train is standing still with the power on. Other scales, including large scale or G scale and HO, do not have a neutral and cannot be stopped with the power on.
These scales cannot, and do not have operating cars like the famous Lionel Milk Car to work with accessories. This is one of many features that have made a Lionel Train the gift and toy that lasts a lifetime.

In accountancy, depreciation refers to two aspects of the same concept: Businesses depreciate long-term assets for both tax and accounting purposes. The former affects the balance sheet of a business or entity, and the latter affects the net income that they report. Generally the cost is allocated, as depreciation expense, among the periods in which the asset is expected to be used. This expense is recognized by businesses for financial reporting and tax purposes.
Methods of computing depreciation, and the periods over which assets are depreciated, may vary between asset types within the same business and may vary for tax purposes. These may be specified by law or accounting standards, which may vary by country.

Al, some great tips and thanks for that, I asked you some time ago how to paint center white lines on roads, and what was the best method and tools. Black auto primer works great. Let it dry a day or two. Place the pinstriping tape down as the centerline. Do this on both sides of the striping tape and use acrylic yellow paint to cover those 2 uncovered black paths. If you want the single white line, just use the painters tape, and leave the gap width of the line you want. White paint, dry, remove tape.

After a long absence, the FAQ is back and updated. I’m hoping it is still useful to folks out there despite the small trickle of feedback I’ve received about the FAQ recently. K-line and Atlas-O catalogs would help too.

Items For Sale Phasing Transformers With a toy train layout, if you have two transformers powering two different divisions and they’re “out of phase” it would be possible to inadvertently run 40 volts through a locomotive when it’s over the center rail insulating track pin separating the divisions. This condition is unsafe. This procedure shows how to phase two or more transformers.
Some transformers have power taps that do Not use the common. If you use a power tap that doesn’t use the transformer common keep that wiring separate from all other wiring. See examples in the chart at the end of Phasing. Transformer “bricks” that are designed to feed controllers must also be phased. They do not all arrive with the same phasing. Preparation and Hook-Up Decide on a Master transformer. All other transformers will be phased to the Master. For phasing, start with the Master transformer and the first to be phased.
Transformers should not be connected to any track or accessories.
