    What do you use to tack down track?

    Brads or screws and what size screw if you use those?

    What about while school glue. the kind that disoves when wet?

    use white glue and push pins to hold it while drying.

    Hi,

    If you're going to ballast, I wouldn't use white glue, it may dissolve when you soak your ballast. I use a transparent silicone & push pins. It holds very tight, but you can slip a sharp utility knife underneath if you ever need to remove it. It also dries quite fast.

    Good luck!
