I disagree HB, the tiny fibres will find their way inside the loco and it will be ultra quiet then.

You know Brian sometime you just cant tell people. They ask a question and you give the answer then they spend the next week telling you that you are wrong.
With the greatest respect dont use carpet no matter what cut or colour it is. ............................................John

WOW!

Having got to three pages I was starting to think this forum was actually quite patient & friendly. It seems not.

I could have sworn that on the previous page I said "ok, warnings noted; any thoughts on sealing it"...

Thanks anyway for the initial help & advice but I didn't come on here to have a disagreement with anyone. I don't think I'll bother wasting anyone's time on here anymore - sorry if you feel differently.

High Nige,,,,, No bad feeling was intended don,t take it like that. This forum is full to the brim of some of the nicest group of people you will find any where.
But you were told for good reason that carpet was not a good idea. And it is not. Simple as that.. John

Donít leave, we all disagree with one another occasionally but we are all old and ugly enough to not take it to heart. There is bucketsful of knowledge on here.

I really donít think carpet tiles are firm enough. Track needs to be laid on a firm non flexible surface. If the track has the slightest bit of up and down it will cause you problems, that is why straight on the board or on cork is usually suggested.
