I'm wondering if anyone has designed and installed a Lego train layout that runs around a room, i.e. with the tracks attached to a wall in a loop, etc.? I've seen some layouts that run along bookshelves and along the edge of tables, but I'm wondering if anyone has set up anything like this (shown here in G Scale) for Lego trains:
I have room in my office and my ideal would be to set up a double-track loop (one 9V track loop and one 12V track loop).
Thanks for any help you can provide!

It did not really work though, it was not satisfying seeing my beautiful lego stashed up by the ceiling where you could not see it very well. Also, my Lego collection very quickly started to expand... So I took my losses (which was nothing compared to what was about to come) relocated my office to another room in the house and fully stripped the room. I got a decorator and carpenter in to transform the room into a 'walk in display room' (complete with glass door so you see from it outside the room with the door closed to keep out the dust) and 1000s of euros later I am a very happy AFOL (with a broken bank balance haha)
My advice: if you are going for a specific effect then do it but if you are doing it to save space don't bother and accept that you will likely need more space anyhow.
Good luck with your decision!

Waist high or near the floor doesn't really work in any of my rooms, either. If I had a good sized room that was open to a balcony or something above it, and my wife would let me, I might consider something that you could watch and see well from above.... but I doubt it.

It was quite a difficult build, I had to have height changes to cope with the window and a wall cupboard, but it works well in that you can have a decent amount of track in a small space.
