Most of us grew up with plastic tracks. And that meant you put them away when finished. On the other hand …
What are some of the creative ways used to store a track?
Mount it to the ceiling with chains and lower it only when you want to use it. It is a great way to take advantage of wasted garage space, but you can’t build a track with all the fancy scenery if you want to do this method. You need to keep the track unit no higher than 12” … that way you can crank the track almost all the way to the ceiling without any issues for those who walk under.
And if you look closely at some of the pictures of tracks, you might notice that a few are built into the area normally reserved for the breakfast table. We are not asking, but we are guessing that the owner of these tracks made room in the house by eliminating a spouse.
The rest of us had to make do with plastic tracks in sections and put the track up when we wanted to play, and take it down when we were finished. How many kids do you know that would want to take their toys all-apart and put back into the box after playing with them a few hours?
