Slide tackle

Slide out computer drawer for control of the model railway

I’ve been tackling a slide out shelf this week. This is to house the computer control for the model railway. I wanted to add this at this stage while it was still easily accessible. It would have been much harder to do once I started adding the trackbed and landscape features.

The frame for the shelf runs on a pair of heavy duty full extension ball bearing drawer slide runners. These are rated to 60kg and will easily support the weight of a laptop.
