The boys received a G-scale Thomas train set for xmas this year. We decided the best place for this is as an elevated train running around the perimeter of their toy room.
So I built 32 hanger frames. 28 were mounted to the walls using 40 lbs drywall anchors and the 4 corners are suspended from the ceiling using all-thread rod and toggle anchors.
Once the hanger frames were up, some 3/4” x 3/4” pine runners were placed and then some 3/8” plywood roadbed was secured to the runners. The whole project was done using leftover scraps and recycled wood out of some my past projects. I got to use all 50 or so of my clamps and even that wasn’t enough to clamp the entire road bed at once, that recycled plywood was pretty wavy in spots :)
My wife is doing the paint job. Kids already love that Thomas is circling over their heads.
Thanks for looking.
