Hi There All:

Newbie here, returning to the hobby after too many years away:) Been looking for the answer to my question, but not sure how to phrase it for a search query, so will ask for help. I want to run a track around the upper portion of the walls in a room, to show off my Lionel O27. I have seen such displays in hobby shops, but never followed up on the supplier, so I am hoping someone might give me a lead.

Many thanks.


Before you spend lots of money on a custom system, go to your local home improvement center and take a look at the closet shelving systems they have for sale.

I've seen two hobby shops with very nice suspended systems, and both were made using closet shelving materials.

On the other hand, if you have sufficient funds, there are some really nice wood systems out there, very classy looking.
