The LED lighting for the layout has advanced to the point that I am beginning to build some permanent bench work. I hope to post more on both of those subjects soon. Recently I installed a large display case along the wall between where the lower staging yard will and the highest point on the layout.
Showcase Express display case for my n scale trains. This is the set that has 10 two foot long sections.
This system uses specially made aluminum channels that interlock when stacked on top of each other. It's a flexible system.
I really like this one so when I had the chance to buy the set of 10 four foot long sections I knew just where I could use it in the new train room.
Here is the display case with all 10 of the 4 foot sections mounted temporarily in place with a complete train placed in the bottom channel. Hey ! that's just about how long a train is going to be on this layout. With these being just above the staging yard and the layout being multiple eras, I plan to park the out of era items on these display case channels. Before mounting these permanently I need to get the shelf that will support the Carlin section of the layout in place.
