Evening All! This is N scale. On we go... I've decided to do one of those Dioramas as my first scenic try. Now being a country fella I like to do the Urban Scene. Nice to visit, just not my place to live. Plus, I grew up not far from Cleveland, Ohio; and now Tampa, Florida. Soooo... My question being: On my base of foam should I put the rails on a roadbed (cork, WS Foam, etc.)? Or just plant it on the base? Now the rail lines are Branchlines, Spurs, etc. No Mains. I did think about digging a trench that would place the rails at ground level, while still having a sub-roadbed. This is sticking to me 'cause it seems it would be easier later on to pull up the track and put other in; Say I do Atlas snap now, then try my hand at Handlay later. Plus, it would allow me to put it in my "Big" layout. Maybe use it as an Access Hatch. Whacha' all think?!
