Afternoon all. Just wanted to post a few pics of the fold-away table for the garage. I have wanted to start a small layout for a long time now. I wanted to be able to fold up the layout, keep buildings and such mounted, and still be able to incorporate two separate train lines. A larger Fastrack layout with a smaller, simpler, O-27 tubular loop within for a 1949 Prairie Steamer #2026 locomotive set. I am using AnyRail for the layout design.
The board is only 8 feet x 5 feet but I should be able to expand around the back of the garage...one day.
I used the 2 inch foam board and simply mounted to the lattice work of 1x3 with a 1x6 surround. The board is rigid and still pretty light. The layout has 9 inches of height clearance in the folded position so I still have the option for a small mountain tunnel and possibly elevated tracks.
