Thanks Kirky,

Can't see your blog,so I've registered with that forum and am waiting for the OK.

I've been and priced some sheets of plywood and the local timber merchant will cut a sheet into strips and deliver for no extra charge.I'll sort out what extra timber I need as well and get it all delivered in one go.
I'm getting excited now. ;D
Hope to finish dismantling my old set up later today.

It's a bit funny you know, I was at Leeming for 3 years and sat my driving test in Northallerton (in the pouring rain, just when the schools were coming out for lunch  :o), damned if I can remember a railway station though  ???

Wikpedia says this about Northalleton: 'It is also very popular with rail enthusiasts, as the station is situated on one of the fastest parts of the East Coast Mainline, and trains pass at speeds up to 125 mph.'
You obviously weren't a ferro equinologist in your Leeming days then?
Maybe it was before 125 mph trains?
Maybe it was before 25 mph trains ? :smiley-laughing:

Hi Kirky,

Wondering how you're fastening the track to the foam and how you'll stick the ballast down if PVA won't work.
I'm curious because I'm thinking of using some sort of foam underlay myself.

Hi bikeracer
The track will be stuck down with copydex also. The ballast will then go on top of that so the PVA for the ballast will be stuck to the dried copydex, not to the foam. Having said that, I think PVA will be fine on top of the foam where the air can get to it, it's just trying to stick it to wood where there seems to be no bond because it can't dry, if you see what I mean. I've not tried to ballast directly onto it though, just onto copydexed  track, so that is speculation.
Cheers
