Back in the 1970's, maybe late 1960's, Model Railroader Magazine had a N scale project railroad, (thats where they build the RR, step by step, and show how to do it), called the East Glasstop. It was built into a coffee table.
If you are interested, simply go to Trains.com and do a search in their magazine index. Search using East Glasstop. You may be able to order copies of the articles and/or the complete magazines from them.

Ted: How big/small is a coffee table you are "looking" for
My layout is 125 cm X 90 cm...( are the 90 cm to large???) You can watch it under the thread: updating my "old" N layout.

Coffee Table layouts have always facinated me, I just need a living room big enough for a coffee table to have one again. I used to have one, matter of fact is was my very first layout.
Good luck with your search.
