Through the years many of our clients have asked us about “see-through” overhead trains.
Stephan Lamb Associates has developed this acrylic overhead system as a very unique and stylish way to display and run your trains. It is manufactured in the USA.
Our overhead railway system is exclusively installed by us and is designed for flat, level ceilings. Our experienced team will expertly install the system for you. Based on your room dimensions and scale, we can design your track plan for $150.00 and will also provide a realistic cost estimate for the overhead supplies and installation services. The average cost ranges between $6,000 and $35,000.
Our support brackets are made from strong, durable acrylic material. The hanger size ranges used are 6", 8", 10", 12", 16", or 18", depending on railroad scale. The 1/2-inch acrylic shelving is securely connected using 1/4-inch bolts and the guardrail is constructed using 1/16-inch thin acrylic.
(Note all acrylic orders are custom made and turnaround time on average is 3-6 weeks depending on manufacturer).
Planning your overhead system
The brand of sectional track you use will determine how the overhead system will fit into your space. Our overhead system is designed to fit together with sectional track. Simply provide us with your room dimensions, type of ceiling (suspended, sheetrock, etc.), any obstacles (ceiling fans, heating ducts, lights, etc.), and the scale preferred (G-scale, O-scale, HO-scale). It is also beneficial to provide photos of area and the location where the overhead system will be installed. The overhead railway is available for single-track operation in G-, O-, and HO-scales. Doublewide styles are available in certain track sizes only.
Our overhead system is designed for these manufacturers' sectional tracks only.
