6-24154 Lionel Maiden Rescue

The installation is with Gargraves track.   The train starts the action with a Lionel 153IR Controller or a custom made "track trip".


Maiden on Track

This Spacing works for High Speed Trains.  Position IR Controller as close to Track as possible.  Gargraves track is shimmed to allow building prongs to fit under track.

Maidedn and IR Spacing

Wire Color Coding eases Identification and Troubleshooting.  Use Maiden Rescue instructions for wiring from IR Controller.  The instructions with the IR Controller for Maiden Rescue are incorrect.
