Just wanted to show my new overhead layout I installed last night. My father purchased a used overhead layout about 3 years ago from a guy in Scraton, PA and he didnt do anything with it, so he dropped it off at my new house.
I found a perfect spot for it, cut the straight parts accordingly, the curved sections where the standard R1 curves. (small engines only).

Here is some pictures on the construction of the Overhead Track System.

And the track

And the horribly edited youtube video (Ill redo this later to fill the window) hehe





Enjoy

If you have an questions dont hesitate to ask.

Looking good. Should be fun to have an overhead indoors. Just don't use sound. Later RJD

This is awesome! You have captured the spirit I am hoping to have with my garage moment! Looks like you have had fun putting it all together too.

Nice job! I have one of those diesels(but in red)...I slept with it when I was three, and after several drops down the stairs, still runs like a charm. Unbelievable.

Woodland Scenics Scenic Ridge, right? How does the GS-4 handle the 9 3/4" radius curves?

Awesome job, Andrew. That would be fun to do in our kids' playroom, but I need to get my outdoor layout completed first!
