    I got my cork roadbed & track yesterday, got my foam & went to hobby shop today for N scale track nails & wouldn't you know it - out of nails. All their railroad stuff together takes up about 40 sq. ft. of wall space & one of the things they actually carry they are out of. Does anyone know where else I might get some nails that will work or anything else I can use? This is a temporary "I want to run trains now" layout.

    Thanks

    Foam nail holding power...

    For temporary setup, you could use straight pins but for 'longer lasting-some what easy to pull up later' attachment you may want to consider some of the suggestions in this thread "Gluing cork to foam?"

    Your local hardware store or craft store should have nails or brads small enough.

    I have an unopened package of Atlas track nails, item 2540, that were sent to me in error. Let me know where to send them and they're yours.

    Thank you so much John. I will send you a private message with my address. I will be glad to send you payment for the nails & shipping if you will include your address. Railroaders are the nicest people I know.
