What do you think about this video?

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.

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

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

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.

Chris Colt: That's sweet!

heettreet: and i told everyone to watch this site cause it was soooooo mature

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.

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!

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!!!!!!

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

sinkhole40: The crown and cornice in the corners really give your layout a finished look. Nice job!

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

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.

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.

domeslacker: what kind of dog is that?

robm1969: Oh man ! great video I like it I'll try to make a shelf for my son

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

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

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

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

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

silk8668: AWESOME. You should make some mountains, Rocks on an Area to give it that 3D LOOK. Great Job and Crown Molding looks Awesome!

Ken Aberson: I applaud you. 

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.

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.
