    Hi,

    I am a newly back in the hobby after a 10 year break. I am looking to build a layout in a nursery & want to do a ceiling/wall layout. I remember there was a company that had a nice wall mount system for various gauge tracks, but I cannot remember the company itself.

    Any suggestions on what to use?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    Here is one company I found www.randgrailroad.com You want to use at least Lionel or MTH o scale trains and LGB large scale size is better. I've seen ho run around the ceiling, but the size is too small to really see it well.

    I'm not sure if this is completely applicable, but here goes nothing:

    I had a 4x4 fold down layout, I mounted it using large wood brackets and a 1x4 board mounted to the top of the brackets, with hingest to allow the 4x4 plywood to be brought down, using 2x4 legs attached with hinges as well. But this was at my parents' old house, they're now in Las Vegas and I'm in So cal being that I'm 21 going to school, and playing football/baseball. You know how that kinda thing goes. Wish I could do the same here, but I"m just renting :(

    Closet Maid double track shelving brackets work great.
