They're genuine Lionel, but the plastic track clips (originally these used to be steel) are very hard to slide into the trestles and don't grip the track well at all. And the design is such that Lionel steel track clips (which hold the ties together and prevent track separation) can't be used with these trestles as manufactured. I couldn't even get the track to stay together properly while setting it up - I'm sure the track would have come apart and dropped my train if I actually tried to run with it.
I gave up and reboxed the set as I didn't have time or enthusiasm for the project before my Christmas layout had to be done. However, if I just had to have trestles, I'd make wooden parts that could slide into the slots in the trestles and then screw Lionel steel track clips to them. Much better rigidity and security that way.
Absolutely will not work with our track, even with the added track links. #1 - if we link the trestles together with the provided link connectors, the trestles are too close and the slope is to dramatic (not gradually graduated). #2. We spread the trestles out without using the connectors - this doesn't work either.
Very difficult to set up as a temporary application. We were trying to use with young children on a wood floor around the Christmas tree and it kept falling apart.
