5/2/21 - Well, I got about 99% of the railroadiana displayed in the new train room. There are still a few items I haven't found yet. They may be in the toy train boxes. And I'm sure as time goes on I will do some rearranging but for now it's set up. Have some small odds and ends to finish up then will start focusing on the layout design again. I hope to get my shelving at October York so I can at least get my trains on display and then this winter possibly start the layout.

That looks great Joe!  That will be a sight when they're all full!

Joe, Looks great!  I sure wish I had a wall that size to mount shelves.

Mark, as soon as the freight yard is finished, above it will be more shelves above it on the 12 foot wall, looks like seven will fit.

That will also clear out the construction debris over here and this 18 foot wall gets floor to ceiling shelves as well.

Joe, Are those Caboose Markers mounted on sides of bipolar doors. I need to look for a set!

For the O gauge I used 5" top of rail to top of rail. It actually worked out to be 5-1/16". I used beer cans to space the shelves. For the standard gauge I did 7-1/4" top of rail to top of rail. I wanted close spacing to help the shelves disappear.

Mine are spaced 5.625", but based on Joe's statement, I may cut it to 5.25 and squeeze another shelf or two in.   I like how Joe's shelves came out, so maybe I was too generous with my spacing.

Thanks to you both, and @Mark Boyce for the info.
