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




What do you think about this video?

joeviking61: Very cool

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 us.

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. 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.

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 posting!

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 SWEETSOME TRAIN!!!!!! 

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 -Glenn

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!

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 long.
