Hello all, I’ve always dreamed having trains going around my walls since I was a little kid. Finally had a chance to buy my house five years ago and so off I go building!

Before starting to build I had to take in consideration any upgrades that I might want do to the interior before starting this project. So I re-did the kitchen, then I cut half the wall that divided my dining room and the living room and I turned into one big living room. I never drew any plans I just started building as I pictured it in my mind.

I used regular 2X4’s to create the shape of the structure then I wrapped the 2X4’s with really nice stressed wood Flooring.

I’m currently not even halfway through this project. I have been working for the last year and a half on this and I expect that it’s going to take me some time to finish as I plan to run the railroad through the whole entire house.
