A shelf layout is a practical way to incorporate a model railroad into almost any room. It needs no specific benchwork, takes up no floorspace, and can be supported from a stud wall. A shelf layout can be set at any height, easily lighted, and readily moved. When combined with a backdrop, it offers realistic model railroading, and it's the principle type of model railroad you would consider incorporating into a main living area like a den or hallway.

This book explores the possibilities, practicalities, and challenges of linear layout design, and includes a portfolio of nine illustrated layouts with construction details. You'll learn how to set up track-shelf systems for model railroads, solve sight-line and lighting problems, plan realistic operations in the shelf layout footprint, build train cassettes to avoid staging and storage problems, and work around doors, windows, and corners.
