Train Rolls Through Maze of Wires on Suspended Track (Dec, 1955)

Train Rolls Through Maze of Wires on Suspended Track

SOMETHING DIFFERENT—that was the goal of Philip Karr and his son David, of Milwaukee, Wis., when they decided to build a model-railroad layout. They achieved it by suspending the rails from the ceiling joists on wires. Now they have a multilevel layout that can easily be changed by lengthening or shortening the wires. Chains anchored to a table under the layout prevent any side sway of the tracks. The layout contains 84 feet of track, supported by plywood strips at the joints. From a distance the track appears to be floating in mid-air.
