That inclined foam always looked interesting but I've never tried it. Guess I always had a problem with how to hold the track and roadbed on the foam. Looks like you have to use glue as the foam certainly won't hold a tack or nail for very long. However it's easy to reform the foam, looks like the perfect answer to raising a track and is pretty strong so it has to be worth a shot. Pete

OK everyone,

Here is my layout update.

Put up a few shelves and also finished laying out the track how I want I want it to "Finally" be.















Hope everyone enjoys the pics, I know I'm enjoying working on my layout.

What's up everyone?

So I am having a hard time deciding on what to use to make the 2% incline foam stick to the table. I've read so many different ways. of course I don't want to go buy a $20 glue when I don't need to.

What do you guys recommend?

Thanks in advance.

Any of the white glues (Elmers) and the yellow construction glues (Titebond lll ) will work and won't react with the foam. Put some weights on the foam and leave it for an hour or so. It won't move and you can peel it up with a knife if you have to. Glue the roadbed to the foam with the same stuff. Pete

Sounds good!
Glue the road bed and then use the tacks to hold the track down?
or should I glue that on as well?

You'll need to experiment with that Ken. I don't see how pins or nails can hold the roadbed to the foam as it just doesn't have enough body for that. Glue is probably the best way to hold the two together but I have never used foam for the track so I have no experience with that. Pete
