Overall view of the large scale train shelves.
The top shelf holds my steel riding car.
Next is the wood riding car.
The two bottom shelves are dual gauge: 4.75" and 3.5". The Maximod takes advantage of this feature.
The bottom shelf is home to my (heavy) battery locomotive.
Each shelf is made of four or five (for dual gauge track) pieces of angle steel welded together. The shelves are then bolted onto four corner posts. The two back corner posts are screwed into the wall.
