Must be ordered separately. Each unit consists of two ¾ x 3-1/2” X 40”/48” – long Legs, one Leg Brace, two Leg Levellers with t-nut inserts and hardware. The upper end of each Leg is dadoed for Section fit and support.  The bottom end of each Leg has a predrilled hole to accommodate an adjustable Leg Leveller (7/16” to 1” adjustment). The Leg Brace provides stability, as well as a means to support a storage shelf, if desired.  The width of the Leg Assembly Units corresponds to those of the Sections, and are available in 36”, 30”, 24”, 20”, 18”, 16” and 12” widths.  Leg Assembl Units should be spaced approximately every 3 feet in your layout.
(See Figure on Module Layout Page for example.)


The components of the Sievers Benchwork create a framework that is sturdy and stable.  The Sections fit onto the Leg Assembly Units, with the Cross Braces and Leg Braces adding extra strength.  Sections may be free-standing or screwed directly to a wall on one side and supported by single Legs on the other.  With the recommended Leg Assembly Unit spacing of approximately 3 feet, you will have a solid base for your roadbed.  Any unevenness in your floor surface can be accommodated by simply adjusting the screw-threaded Leg Leveller for each Leg individually, if needed to ensure smooth train operation.

Risers provide a convenient way to raise or lower the track level, or to achieve a desired gradient for contoured landscapes, and can be mounted on any section of the open grid-work.
