What is the best practice to anchor a 2'X4' N scale module to the wall? Preferably without support legs but I am open to throwing them on there if need be.

My first thought was 3" x 3/8" lag bolts into the studs but I am open to other ways.

I think I'd screw the frame to the wall with deck screws of length needed and screw a 1x4 horizontal about foot below and run a couple diagnal braces on 45 degree from wall up to middle of platforrm.
3x3/8 lag seems like major overkill.

Sorry, just now seen this was double posted. I was talking about a frame built with 1" boards.
