Slide Board

Sliding vertical wall brackets for model train board?

I am building a model train layout and want to fix the base board to the wall at one end with free standing legs at the other. The length of the board is about 5ft which would mean I’d have to fix the bracket about 2ft up from the ground. This is obviously to low so I am looking for brackets that are on a sliding vertical track. I could slide them right down to pack the board away or fold down the board and slide the brackets up to table height to play with the trains.

Has anyone seen a bracket that fits the description?

Thanks

I haven’t seen a STOCK bracket like that at my local hardware store… BUT you could use any number of available products.

One thing I’M thinking, having built 3 dozen RR’s now is: Are you including in your planning, DEPTH for your buildings ?? You’ll either need to build a vertical BOX for the layout to fit into, or (much harder) a recessed area between wall-studs.

IF you were to build a vertical box (1″x 6″ frame), you could insert metal pegs in the base-board, and route grooves into the frame. The pegs would slide in the grooves and then rest in “niches” in the grooves at “storage” and “usage” levels.

Ah, the engineering-joys of trying to fit a layout into your space.

ALWAYS remember to MEASURE Trice, CUT Once !!
