How To Make A Shelf Train Or Ceiling Train That Looks Classy




What do you think about this video?

Dhiraj Bansal: You inspired me to build a similar layout for my son's room. He is 3 and just loves watching the train go round and round. I am now working to add landscaping elements/scenery to it. I got a few buildings, bridges, a platform etc. to add some 3-D elements to it. But I am really interested in adding some wall backgrounds like you did. Where did you order them from? They are just awesome!! Please let me know.

har99ley: Nice job......look up making rock or mountains out of styro foam lite weight and with a little stippling you can paint to look like real stone.......congrats.....never too old for TRAINS.....almost 60!!!!!

1974mortarman: having owned a train set as a child, I use to love setting it up and tearing it down to reset it up in another way. Throughout the years I have often thought about it and since moving to Wyoming just recently after my military service, we live right next to a railroad and trains go by about every 30 mins (they are really silent to be honest). Well my 2 year old loves it! So I am currently in a build of a similar layout in our living room. I was thinking about using plexi glass as you'll be able to see through, just an idea. But thanks for the video, is exactly what I was hoping to see. 

David Ammerlaan: nice! think its called a "shelf layout" 

Jenna Lyn Stana: how did you finish the back side of the corners since their was a gap? did you just make a filler piece?

gacj2010: You did a great job...its wonderful and not taking up space ,,,,,wonderful ...I love your love of beast and child

Todd Bergland: This is cool. Dropped in on a random link, but this is awesome to see.

Robert Cooney: I have been " playin " trains since I was 5 years old and next Thursday I turn 62..... Never ever stop playing with the trains.... and... I am just up the street from You, I live in Cottonwood Heights! Bob Cooney 801-634-5005. :)

Tim Belcher: I really like what you did. I'm 57 and love trains. My parents brought me my first train when I was 10, It gets in your blood

Matt Redman: Good work!

75Bird455: Good Job, looks great! Most importantly, you seem to enjoy it! Now re-do it all and double track it!

David Desjardins: Not nerdy buddy. It's good to have something to get excited about.

David Linfante: Really a sweet layout. love the finished look of the corners. one pizzeria in my town has a ceiling train that for some time, only went back and forth on a short track then it finally was completed to go around the entire dining area.

tenoregermania: Well, we don't stop playing because we get old, we get old because we stop playing. You did a super job.

joeviking61: Very cool

gacj2010: You are blest

andrew bryant: awesome Brutha! building same type of idea in basement in NYC. unfortunately don't have great ceiling cause had same idea as you did by putting a backdrop behind trains but working on something. Looks sharp.

Tom Plugge: love it man!!

Jared Moore: cool train what scale is it G, O,HO

sam rominski: very cool

47mulligan: Fantastic! Your enthusiasm is wonderful too. It will be fun for you to share with your assistant engineers. I love my trains too, got an 027Lionel steamer when I was 9, it got me hooked. Thanks for sharing with us.

Jim Massey: Brian, Seriously nice project!!! I really like the way it finished out with the crown molding...just awesome!!!

Ryan Guilford: definitely not nerdy or little kid thing. Looks great man. Good job

MermanJesse: Also, if you have a Hobby Lobby near by, you can go to their website on your phone before you check out, and they will take 40% off with a coupon code that you show the cashier. This is how I got my trains started. A $120 set came to around $70

tincanboat: great job. the crown molding really looks great. love the back grounds what a difference. you know if like trains you just need a floor or table to set the track up on. anything else is just gravy. I'm thinking of putting a ceiling train in my living room after seeing yours I ve decided.

Jeff Phillips: Very nice! What background material did you use? I couldn't hear the guy.

strate8: I understand about the kid thing, I would say most of us model railroader are kids at heart so you're in good company. Your "shelf train" is way awesome and you have done a fantastic job.

John Paris: good job man

Peter Felmore: Looks great and I can see you are very proud of it. Good job. Peter Felmore, Cape Town ,South Africa.

Anapode Solar: Really nice looking job, the crown molding makes it look great.

Chris Colt: That's sweet!

Simon Rankin: we have a pub in Adelaide Australia that runs a train around like yours ,while you eat you can watch it go around...

Rogelio Figueroa: Way cool.

strafrag1: Well done! It's a great hobby.

Ashis Mukerjea: Very well done. Crown Moulding makes it more appealing to eyes.

Retro719: Awesome and inspiring bro.I was wondering how to do one, thanks for posting!

Roger Peterson: I almost stopped watching, because a shelf with metal brackets just didn't appeal to me. However, the crown molding & corners painted to match the trim redeemed the video!

Anthony Graves: Nice job man! Fun. That's what it's all about...

yesterday8265: Looks real good,you did a nice job on this project

Poncho Yates: Cool!

James Lowe: Man, that is way cool. You are going to be the hero of your kids, nephews and nieces, and every used to be kid you know. 

Q Bizzy: This is an awesome idea! Going to print out a picture for each wall to teach my children, North, East, South and West. Thanks for sharing!

domeslacker: what kind of dog is that?

3DJavi: Oh man ! great video I like it I'll try to make a shelf for my son

Ken Aberson: Go slower please. So it is more realistic through the scenery. Go dcc w/ sound if you haven't already. But its really cool.

machia0705: Real good...Gave me an idea for my office. Thanks.

john hemple: very very nice job now to convince the wife lol

Glenn Gordon: Nice job on the installation! I have a shelf train layout as well. Grand Ledge Railway -Glenn

Andrew G: Awesome! I think this is where my dad got the idea to build his own! Grand Ledge Railway

warpo007: Nice, but those brackets aren't very classy.

Chef de NYC: Thanks! I'm more info ultrasound type of work. I learn most of the stuff myself online. Just only recently start looking for a school to make things "official". Hehe
