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

Grand Ledge Railway
Anthony Graves: Nice job man! Fun. That's what it's all about...
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
Poncho Yates: Cool!
Tad Heath: I don't care what people think......but I do know I'm jealous as all

coming over to help you move the throttle!!! Lol got to say it again
warpo007: Nice, but those brackets aren't very classy.
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.
sinkhole40: The crown and cornice in the corners really give your layout a finished
look. Nice job!
heettreet: and i told everyone to watch this site cause it was soooooo mature
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 ; )
CHRIS SHAW: Where did you find the background scenes? Most are 24" wide and not very
xxdjcharlierockxx: pretty cool bri but that noise has to be annoying after a while. looks
awesome though.wtg! nice job
johnandwegs: Nice, really like it!!! But the city back drop is not France but flinders
street station in Melbourne Australia. :)
briansmobile1: All done! It looks way better now- new updated vid coming soon!
briansmobile1: @supertlsmith I shot down $80 just for the engine, about $20 per car. Track
was about $75 Shelving was around $200 with brackets and it took about 13
hours or so.
Beach Comer: YES, where did you get the graphics, can't find them any where...? I have
already spent a hundred bucks and they do not look as nice. I also like how
long they are....
MartyLJ57: Nice job. Any plans to add a backgrounds?
zolar7a: Very cool! the train turned out great. I'm enjoying your You tube channel

everyday. From Christian Bale in "The Machinist" to Andy Dalton the
briansmobile1: @zolar7a Thanks
bwizz24ify: Dude!! That really cool!!
ToCoMi: thats way cool
francescorenzitti: Love your train man! I want to build one for my kid. A couple of questions
if you would. 1. What is the length you used from the corner of the wall to
where it joins with the straight away piece? I am assuming it is the same
on both sides. 2. What scale are those trains? 3. How do you control the
trains? 4. What is the height you chose from the shelf to the ceiling? 5.
Do you build the shelf first then put the track on after? Thanks.
jay7264: The person that put 1 dislike lives near railroad tracks
briansmobile1: @sweetlikeADAM My wife is a patient woman.... but not that patient. I
really tried for that. ; )
ChooChoo Mike: It really is fun, I call mine a shelf train, suspended with purchased
"shelf anchors". My corners provide some space for lighted buildings. You
can run with a remote and multiple trains if you go with digital control. I
use MTH DCS for O-Gauge trains.
