Has anyone used this on top of the plywood board Vitrex 4 Star Sound Reduction Underlay ? https://www.homebase.co.uk/vitrex-4-star-sound-reduction-underlay-10-sq-m_p095250

Got all of the wood for the baseboard today all nicely cut for me by a nice man from Jewsons. Onward and upwards at last I hope.

Always good to hear of progress.

Re the sound insulation question, if the material is a 'rubber' based material it may do the trick if the plan is to reduce any drumming through the baseboard. I'd stay clear of anything like the felt stuff I have seen in various DIY sheds.

Well that's the baseboard built at last and If I must say so seeing that's its the first time I have built one it looks and fits into the space just right. After 15 years working with metal this wood stuff is a bit strange to me lol. I could not resist having a play with what I thought would be the final plan and now I am not sure which one to use but I will not bore you lot with that as I have shown enough plans on this thread as it is. Now to order the track as I am ordering enough for both plans as there is not a great deal of difference track bits wise. On wards and upwards.

Ok final choice I promise as I just cant make up my mind which one and as I cant do them both It has to be one of them. Which one will have the greatest running potential (fun)after been built as I will have fun building any of them. Top or Bottom.

If you can get it to fit properly (in a couple of places it doesn't) then the bottom one purely because you have separate running ovals. How many stations are involved in that one?

There are 2 stations one at the top and one at the bottom. The middle bit will be a factory of some sort. The lines around the edge and across the board is the frame of the baseboard underneath so I will not block any point motors..

Great to get the plan going but just perhaps three stations on a board of the planned size (54"x33") may be one too many.

Good luck with the build and have fun.

@daveg
With a little amendment I think it's clearer what Bob means, Dave.
Bob - please make one of the stations a small halt for local trains as 2 stations within that distance for anything else does not seem right to me.

I would agree about the bottom layout. Two running loops has to be more fun!

As a novice, I would (am) going for two loops for greater variety and stock variants. Both look really nice but the bottom one looks better in my opinion.

If you like shunting (puzzles) then the first plan (without the coloured blocks) seems better. It looks as if it contains an Inglenook and a modified Timesaver. On the negative side,... at the right side there are two nasty bumps in the wide turn. (You plan with flex-tracks?). Is the central end station at a higher level? At the right there might be enough place for a screw-circle in a hill...

If watching running trains is what you aim at, then the second one with the two loops is preferrable.
