Piece of plywood works for me. Far cheaper. I have a curved piece made for bends.

That will get the job done. I found that using three to hold the track in place works best, even round the curves.

Definitely agree with that. Ideal for the job and as cheap as chips. R-

Only costs 55p John, even a retired destitute bank employee can afford that. :D

Totally agree, Brian, and if i had not already been in possession of more ply than you can throw a stick at, could well have been tempted. My old Dad,, bless him, always said, waste not, want not, and you have to remember the post costs, to get stuff delivered to france. Twas cheaper, just to walk to the workshop. And of course, as you so delicately, pointed out, times are hard, even for retired bankers.
