Recently I've been posting images of various layout projects, mainly structures. In seeing the posts about the new and improved PRR Panhandle Division, I realized I never shared images of my train room and what I've done since I began construction in earnest in late December of last year. I thought you might like to see some overall views.
The room is underneath a large addition we had done in 2015. In working with our architect I specified that there were to be no columns or other obstructions, so he included a 15" I-beam to support the load above. The finished room size is 26' 9" x 29" 1". Overhead lighting is from four dimmable, 3000K LED troffers. I may add LED track lighting down the road to highlight various scenes. Benchwork is by Mianne and measures 20' X 20'. I display my modest postwar collection on Trainshelves. I run some of those trains from time to time, but my daily runners are MTH and modern-era Lionel.
