Hobby Time: Control Table Built for N Scale RR

The control table built for my door top layout measures 29 1/2" h x 2' x 1 1/2'. This gives me room for the power packs, the switches (yet to be wired and installed) and work and storage space. Putting in a shelf at 12" h both stabilized the lets and gave me much needed storage space. The table is lightweight and free standing. Mobility will be limited by the wiring extending to the rails and switches. All the lumber can be purchased for under $50, using good pine. Until working with this layout, my work with wood was extremely limited. I find the work rewarding and enjoyable.

Good luck with your hobby endeavors!
