Im building mybasic layout from an article I saw in the new model railroader mag, but they do some things in there I dont get. They say to build the benckwork and table from ripped 3 inch strips of 1/2 plywood, that doesnt make sense to me. Why go to trouble of ripping a 4x8 sheet of plywood, on a itty bitty home table saw, when you can just use 1x3 solid lumber, which to me would be easier, cheaper, stronger and better looking, or is there something to this I dont know about? they say to use contact cement to glue down your grass mat, does anyone have another option?.....contact cement is a one time only chance, you screw it up, and you just blew a good chunk of cash...... how do you make roadbed material curve? Im using the foam roadbed, and if you give a little stretch it will follow curves, but how do you keep it that way until the glue sets up? any tips? anyone have a basic DC wiring diagram? that is all for the moment trust me there will be more, thanks!
