Hi Lawrence,

It's the stuff you put down under wooden laminate floors. I saw a post by another forum member who had used it but can't find the original post.

Cuts ok with a sharp stanley knife and its about 4-5mm thick. You get 19 sheets per pack and size is not far off 24" x 36"

Hi Alex,

I used the laminate floor underlay.

You can see my post on the link below relating to HOLLERTON JUNCTION.

Many thanks

Hi Paddy,

Thanks for the link, much appreciated.

What did you use to glue the fibreboard down with? I was going to go out tonight and glue down a small section with PVA but it chucking it down with snow just now.

Maybe tomorrow.

Hi Lawrence,

Yeah, tell me about it. I'm supposed to be going to Auchroisk distillery, near Keith tomorrow then over to Aberdeen, via Turriff and Ellon.

Better pack my emergency gear. :worried:

Despite what I said last night I did glue down a couple of pieces of the fibreboard. Went to check it tonight and it is stuck solid, no lumps bumps or anything. As flat as flat can be.

Glued down another 3 pieces tonight. I'll try and get the last two frames for the upper layout done tomorrow evening, then the MDF on top and then the rest of the fibreboard.

I may even get some trains running at the weekend. :goggleeyes:

Hi Nick,

 :thankyousign:

Really made good progress over the past couple of weeks. The rolling stock is adding up but a severe lack of suitable locos. Been looking at Ebay for some additional J94 0-6-0 locos but they go quite high. Another wagon order will be placed next Monday when i get paid.

Hi Alex,

I used neat PVA glue and placed books on top of the board to keep it flat whilst it dried.

Many thanks

Hi Paddy,

I placed weights on top of the boards as well and used neat PVA. It seems to be ok so far. I suppose the test will come when I start to use plaster bandages for the terrain.

Hi Alex,

It may be worth sealing the board surface before you start.  This can be done with paint or a PVA solution.

Thanks for that Paddy, I'll try it on a test piece first.

The last of the framework is up and the MDF has been glued in place. Visiting the in/out Laws tomorrow night so Saturday will see the rest of the fibrboard fitted to the upper layout.

On Sunday I can start to lay out the track and see if all my ideas fit.
