Re: Underlay for tracks

This topic has come up many times. Yes, the shoulder might look nice but if underlay causes track/points to not be flat then running qualities are compromised. As previous posts have pointed out, trains do not run silently over tracks. Still, it's each to their own but it seems a lot of extra work a...

Re: First Ambitious Project!!

Welcome Phil. I'd probably go for 009 due to tight curves - but the scale may not be suitable for small fingers. As to track, if OO then most seem to favour Peco.
