    Now that I am modeling 0n30, I didn't want the magnets for un-coupling to be sitting on the top of this track (ala HO) so I used the 0 gauge magnets and used the Peco instructions for it.

    Good idea Shamus. Only thing I would suggest is to use a piece of 1/16" styrene sheet instead of the cardstock, as it won't react to the moisture during ballasting.

    Hi Mike
    After painting the card with emulsion paints (Water proof) I doubt that there would be a reaction from white wood glue when I ballast. (Hope not anyway:D)
