    After laying some track last night i noticed on a curve the loco leaning. It seems my foam is not even in some spots. Any ideas how to fix this without tearing up the roadbed? I thought of hot glue or some caulk. Paul

    If the track is tacked down (not glued) try cerial box shimms. I use them to superelevate turns too. FRED

    Paul: You might try cutting a little notch out of the roadbed on the inside of the curve if you can see a lump there. Or put a slot on the outside of the curve. Let the roadbed adjust to its new length.

    Hmmm... Do you mean the Roadbed Foam or the Base (Layout) Foam?
