Will buy a 4' x 8' sheet & cut to fit. Also need to add PVC pipes to the legs to raise the modules to 50" at top of rails. the modules will be above the AC control box on wall. Plus the legs will be on casters to let me move the modules around for maintenance.
Here's the plan overview with some dimensions. The plan was done with 3rd Planit.
   
And here's the new modules setup in my apartment. The cement blocks are temporary. Want to raise the height to 50" at rail tops using PVC pipes.

Added an image of the tracks loosely in place. Waiting on more Micro Engineering #5 code 70 switches.

Are you not worried the pvc pipes will have too much wobble?

The PVC pipe will be "fitted" over about 1' of each folding legs, so shouldn't be too much wobble.

Andy, looks like you will have an AWESOME switching layout Applause , Really looking forward to seeing your progress.

I had a 8'x3' switching layout for a few years, it was fun, lots to do.
