I've used both silicon caulk and Aileen's Tacky Glue. The silicone caulk turned out to be a real pain if I had to change anything later, so I wouldn't do that again.
I like, and continue to use, the Aileen's Tacky Glue, because, well.. its tacky and helps to hold the track in place even as it is drying. Also, it can be loosened up with water if you need to move things. The little bit of ballasting that I've tried does not seem to be enough to disturb it.

I also decided to use the lower profile “branch line” Homasote roadbed this time as I felt in hindsight that the full height product that I used previously looked a bit too main line for a narrow gauge application.My roadbed is now glued down, the kerfs filled and sanded, and everything sealed with a light earth tone primer paint.So the Question is: what is everyone using to attach the flextrack to their roadbed? As far as I recall last time, I used my favourite yellow carpenter’s glue and held the track down and in position with little pin board tacks until everything set up, when I removed them and then came back and ballasted everything.Thoughts? Suggestions? Opinions?jim
