RE: [z_scale] Road width question
- The roadbed I find the best is the one from Merkur.
The Merkur Roadbed system is premade. It's just to snap in the track and it
will look great at once. If you paint your rails rusty it will look extremly
good. The overside is ballasted and the underside is made from soft foam.
This gives less sound and also that the track is not glued down. Especially
steam locos runs much better when the track is not glued stiff to the board
since the track can flex which gives better contact to the long rows with
wheels that steamers have. There is pieces available for all tracks from
If you want to see it, I have uploaded some pictures on my site. See

electrics (far down on the page).
