Hi, I am an HO scale modeler of almost six years, and an N scale model railroader of a year and a half. About a year ago, I took down my Ho model railroad in my basement to make way for my N scale layout. Now, a year later, I am setting up my HO scale layout in my garage. When I had my layout in my basement, I used Busch roadway to model roads on my layout. Now, I am considering switching to Walthers Cornerstone street system, and I was hoping somebody could give me a little advice. Is it easy to put together, does it look realistic? Thanks!:cool:

As my layout has many "dirt" roads I did not have many asphalt roads to "build". The main street of my "borough" is brick.

A buddy has asphalt streets. He used a dark gray, almost black foam material. I believed he called it "closed cellular foam". It reminds me of the gray pipe insulation, only in flat sheets. We cut it even thinner using my wire saw. Looks good. Excellent, in fact.

I have no idea where he got the stuff, but I have seen similar, smaller sheets in craft stores like Hobby Lobby and Joanne Fabrics. It can be cut with scissors to form the curbs and corners.
