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.
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.
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.
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
tenoregermania: Well, we don't stop playing because we get old, we get old because we stop
playing. You did a super job.
Jim Massey: Brian, Seriously nice project!!! I really like the way it finished out
with the crown molding...just awesome!!!
John Paris: good job man
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.
Peter Felmore: Looks great and I can see you are very proud of it. Good job.

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.
john hemple: very very nice job now to convince the wife lol
Retro719: Awesome and inspiring bro.I was wondering how to do one, thanks for
tiredfingers99: Awsome layout, what a great idea. I was thinking of doing this with all
bridges so you could see it from underneath as well. The curves with
bridges could be an issue.
Ashis Mukerjea: Very well done. Crown Moulding makes it more appealing to eyes.
Silk Boxing: AWESOME. You should make some mountains, Rocks on an Area to give it that
3D LOOK. Great Job and Crown Molding looks Awesome!
Dan LaChappelle: trains are always cool , and you never outgrow them really I have a
Lionel that Father in law turned into an unofficial Harley Davidson
addition , it turned out sweet I really need to do something like this for
it thanks for the inspiration!
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.
yesterday8265: Looks real good,you did a nice job on this project
Tad Heath: I don't care what people think......but I do know I'm jealous as all
h*ll!!!! THAT THING IS SWEETSOME!!!!!! Oh thats what I call sweet & awesome
together lol......YOU DID SUCH A GREAT JOB ON THAT!!!! I model N scale but
have HO. & Z too. I just wish you lived in corning n.y area cause i'd be
coming over to help you move the throttle!!! Lol got to say it again
strafrag1: Well done! It's a great hobby.
Ryan Guilford: definitely not nerdy or little kid thing. Looks great man. Good job
Anthony Graves: Nice job man! Fun. That's what it's all about...
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
machia0705: Real good...Gave me an idea for my office. Thanks.
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!
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.
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
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.
Glenn Gordon: Nice job on the installation! I have a shelf train layout as well.
Grand Ledge Railway
Ken Aberson: I applaud you.
A Stein: Thanks for posting this. Just found it on a search due to planning my own
layout. You gave me some ideas. Nice job.
heettreet: and i told everyone to watch this site cause it was soooooo mature
sinkhole40: The crown and cornice in the corners really give your layout a finished
look. Nice job!
stonedvideos1: i don't know why i like trains, but i do. i really like this. you've done a
good job here. and you got a nice train.
chickenofsea: How about the Soul Train?
Jon Ekerwald: just WOW! Nice done.
briansmobile1: Thanks! I've been wondering where that was.
supertlsmith: Hey, really like it. I have purchased an o scale polar express Lionel and
enough fasttrack to circle my son's room. I have 3 questions. 1) how much
did the materials cost, 2) what kind of wood did you use, and, 3) how many
hours did it take to finish. I'm doing this for my son as a Christmas
present. Thanks and thanks for posting your train set.
briansmobile1: Thank you!
briansmobile1: @flukesalot Thanks ; )
