Hey all, I am new here and I have searched for folks who have set up train sets in their office or place of business and not found much info on it.

Does anyone have pictures or suggestions for setting up sets in offices? I would love to hear your suggestions.

BTW, I own the business and really would love to set on up on in my personal office such as on shelves.

Office or Train Room

An office is a personal space. I would think professional layout people would have the experience. The CEO pays up and they build. That's why you can't find much.

Some of our N scalers have nice tables not too big. If designed right it could be covered to make a large meeting table.

A coffee table will hold a Z scale. Or you could have a pull down panel. Just take the trains off when you raise it.

Of course budget and how much work you will do will factor in.
Normally layouts are complicated and require good planning.
You will have to decide on a scale and setting for you layout

This is something to think about until you get another answer.
It sounds like an interesting challenge.

Thanks T. I was thinking about putting one up at the top of my office towards the ceiling. I don't know if suspending the track would be better of if I should build shelving that goes around the room for the track.

This is for my personal office. I have lots of trains and think a 'o' set would be better. I already have a case for some G gauge engines on display.

Anyone done anything like this?
