Thanks for your reply. I inadvertently set out another discussion.HawaiiTraction;
I replied to your similar post in a different section of this forum. A shelf layout is good, but I'm not sure what you mean by "something that could go on the floor." Do you mean
(1) A temporary assembly of track sections right on top of the carpet or tile, like a Lionel christmas layout?
Or do you mean
(2) A conventional layout, with the track, trolley, structures, & scenery, permanently mounted on a plywood, or extruded foam. base; that lies on the floor when being used, and can be taken up and stored elsewhere?
Or something else?
I think that running on the floor would be much more difficult than running on a table. The table could have folding legs, if it needs to be stored between uses.
My own layout is a shelf one with overhead catenary. I model the Milwaukee Road in the Seattle, Washington area in the 1920s. Let me know which option you want and I will try to help.
