    Hey guys, I'm making my roadbed from 7/16" annaconna (Canadian version of Homasote). Anyway, I would like to know what the ho scale roadbed width at top and the bottom of roadbed. I know it woud vary as to the slope of the roadbed. Thinking of a 45 or 60 deg slope. Any help would be great.

    usually cut homasote 2'' wide, and bevel up to 1-1/8". the little extra width at the base makes blending scenery easier.
