    Well here it is,.. and it folds up. [Murphy Style?] Now some thinking on my part as how to fasten the accessories to the table. [NO GLUE!] I may have to make my own clamps to hold everything down. It's 5'X7' and I have 10" clearance from table top to wall when folded. No wiring will be exposed when folded. [Double bottomed] Also making removable siding panels that will be installed at each end of table for scenery. I already feel I need to expand my room,....

    Looks like a great start!
    5x7 isn't a lot of room to run O/O27 trains on but with a little creativity, you can come up with some pretty interesting layouts. Check out ThorTrains.Com for some great inspiration for doing larger gauge track layouts in smaller spaces.

    Thanks Cannonball,.. I wish I had a room 20x30, but this is what I have. The grandson can't understand why Granpa can't get this finished sooner! I'll check out that site, I need all the help I can get!!

    Cool concept and when you get right to it there is a lot of room to run trains. HEY!!!!!!!!!!!! You’re a Steelers fan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    [FONT=&quot]My feeling is that anytime you can make a train go forward or backup there is enough room. My girls thought for a long time that simple 0-27 track around the Christmas Tree was the greatest train layout.

    Have fun GP and keep laying the track.
