Look on "Pinterest", I think it is, or one of other such sites, and search "barn door" or "sliding door", and you'll see a DIY setup that was made, with the rollers being simple hardware store stamped steel cable pulleys .
I had followed a link on Facebook I think it was, that someone sent to me.
You can do it sturdy, and on the cheap!
Have your small block and tackle hanging from a single pulley / roller setup, with the track cantilevered to wall studs, or from the ceiling joists, whichever placement would be most advantageous.
The pulley / roller / block and tackle setup will lift right off when tot in use, and that wonderful gravity stuff keeps everything in place.

Edit again: Get after it!
