There's everything from holiday carpet layouts to full blown layouts over 50'. The sawhorses are fine as long as the sheets don't sag enough to create a running problem. If that occurs, you could run a 2x4 or 2x3 along both long edges and center the saw horses between.
I would think the most common platform is constructed like a stud wall albeit horizontal with 2x4s for legs. That supports body weight for larger layouts and access to areas that can't be reached from the side of the layout. And 2x4s (2x3s) are the cheapest structural wood for a layout.
Right now I have a small test track and I'm renovating a basement back room for a 19' x 4.25' layout with a 3' dog bone at one end. I plan on using the 2x3s for the sheet framing.
