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.
