110 Graduated Trestles
Production: 1955 - 1969
The 110 Trestle Set was first offered in 1955. It is a popular item and easy to locate. The trestle set permitted layouts to become even more three dimensional as tracks could be elevated and lowered over other tracks. When used in conjunction with one of Lionel trestle bridges, a layout would become very impressive.
The 110 Trestle Set included the following items: Twenty-four trestle piers, metal track clamps and the appropriate amount of mounting screws. The majority of trestle sets were produced in gray, however some black sets do exist.
Most trestle sets were sold with 22 piers and 2 spacers. These spacers were intended to be used under the track prior to the lowest pier. Although additional research is required, we believe these spacers were included in all trestle sets produced from 1955 through 1969.
