A demonstration of support of weight with 175 pounts in the center of the frame:
A light weight but strong paint-able surface of dibond that is durable and easy to maintain keeping the weight of the platform (aluminum) a very light weight platform.
Here is a sample of the track frame offered
Cost(*): Each layout frame is unique to the desires and needs of each track design. A basic starting estimate would be $3.75 to 4.25 per square foot (base unit) with final cost depending on width and length along with need for surface, paint, or legs.
