HO ceiling train on Golden Gate Bridge 12 BART cars

Here a must for those who plan to set up the ceiling layout.
1. Track rerailers. Install after every turns. Train tends to get derail coming out a turn. This save you time from climbing up there.
2. Rail guard. You can use flexy glass or wire construction hold in place with wheel bearing pin. Once the train fall on the floor, It’s shopping time and $$$.
2. A track cleaner car. Tracks will get rusty over time so u need to keep it clean. I run it every 4 months.
*3. Use 2 or more locomotives and wire the contact points together. The more contacts shared the smoother the operation and alleviates stop and go hesitant.
4.Optional keep it thin. That means one track rather multi tracks. You want to see the train and not the baseboard. Two tracks are too wide. It looks like you have bookshelves up there. Decorate with rope lights and bridges. Paint the baseboard black. This hides your layout and accentuates the train image. Maintenance free is the keyword.

    I wish!!! That was my “holy grail” I sold to you, but I thought it would be better off with someone who could really run them instead of me keeping them in the box … good luck in finding more!

    Thanks, what I learned after 12 yrs of ceiling set up is that track will get rusted over time, mental will rust. Track cleaner car is a must to save you from climbing up there to clean the track.
    Blasting the train at high speed require retainer wire/wall. Once they fall time for shopping.

    i love that roof setup.
    However (sorry to burst your bubble) those are not bart cars, those are stainless steel coaches (like budd made) not bart cars.

    Wheels will roll off track. Rerailer will put the wheels back on track once the trains run over it. This save you time to clim up there and try to set the wheel on track. Love the BEE GEES. Their harmony are incredible and powerful.

    Awesome stuff! I …
    Awesome stuff! I especially love the Golden gate! and the rope light adds so much to it! I have my own around the ceiling layout, just 1×4 pine and corner brackets. I still need to paint it black and run wire to the other corner of the layout to get better power there. I have one corner raised a bit to add in a small 1% grade, mainly for testing free rolling cars. On one of my long walls, I am gonna make it a 1×6 and add a small passing track in though…..

    Now this is entertaining, great use of rope light, never seen anything like this…Outstanding!

    This is a very cool train set! This is a pretty good layout!I do admit that is a cool way to set up the trains if there is no room!

    I was looking forward in seeing the video with your train set running around the ceiling. When I tried to view it, it says that the originator of that video was taken down. Is there any way you can put it back up? I always thought that a ceiling RR would be the answer to my space problem. I would like to know more about re-railers so I could keep the train on the track. Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks much.
