Clear Acrylic Overhead Railway Systems
Developed by Stephan Lamb Associates, and made in the USA, this overhead system is a very unique and stylish way to display and run your trains. Our acrylic overhead railway system is available exclusively through us. If you need someone to install it for you, we offer our installation services.
Below are two example photos, one with a G-scale acrylic overhead system hung from a suspended ceiling, and an HO-scale double wide mounted to a flat sheetrock ceiling. (Note: all overheads are designed for flat ceilings.)

Acrylic system details
Our overhead system is designed for flat level ceilings, and our support brackets are made from strong durable acrylic. 1/4-inch bolts are used to connect 1/2-inch thick acrylic shelving together, and are designed to hang from flat or suspended ceilings. 1/16-inch thin acrylic is used as a guardrail. The system comes with all the hardware needed for mounting. Lexan hanger size ranges 6”, 8”, 10”, 12”,16”,18” depending on scale.

Planning your overhead system
Just like any model railroad, it all starts with a track plan. The brand of sectional track you use will determine how the overhead system will fit into your space. Our overhead system is very simple and made to fit together with sectional track. You should provide us with your room dimensions, type of ceiling (suspended; sheetrock etc.)any obstacles (ceiling fans; heating ducts; lights etc.)
the scale (G-scale, O-scale, HO) plus if you could provide photos of area and the location where it will be installed. It is available for single track operation in G, O, and HO scales. Double wide in certain track sizes only.
Our overhead system is designed for these manufacturer’s sectional tracks only.
(Note: The center of a circle is the midpoint of its diameter, divide it into two equal parts, which is a radius of the circle.)
We will design your track plan for $150.00 based on your room dimensions and scale. The overhead is fairly simple to install yourself, however we highly recommend our installation services because we have very experienced team with this type of installation. After we receive a deposit for you order, expected turnaround time is 5-8 weeks before shipment.
