Layout Construction – Trestles
Although it isn’t an exciting subject, it seems to create a lot of discussion on model railway forums and that is the subject of model railway layout trestles and display heights.
The trestles I use for both Inglenook South and the Gatport Airwick diorama are a pair of three legged ‘A’ frame style trestles, called ‘Lerberg’ from the IKEA range and (at the time of writing this post) are only a fiver each!
The trestles used to carry product code 801.307.76. The dimensions for the trestles are width: 60 cm, depth: 39 cm, height: 70 cm and (according to the Ikea website) max. load: 50 kg
