Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
Foam roadbed and fascia are being installed on The Hills Line. I decided to use underlayment plywood for the fascia since I wanted something a little more rugged than masonite and didn’t need to curve the material. The plywood is 1/4 inch thick and was comparable in price to tempered masonite. The foam is attached to the benchwork with Loctite PowerGrab. The fascia is glued as well as brad nailed to create one solid structure.
While hard to see in the attached photo, the roadbed does extend about four inches beyond the shelving units to allow for some toe room against the layout. I also need to notch the fascia and carve the foam for the watercourses, but want to get further along with the bridges and footings before I tackle that task.
