2.0 out of 5 stars Hornby track underlay 12 Jan 2011
By Oldave
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The underlay is OK for straight track but for curves and points a lot is to be desired. The inner radius of a given track is shorter than the outer radius and thus the foam tends to lift the inner rail. Trimming for points is difficult. Trim too much and the points sag. Trim not enough and the points lift. I have had great difficulty getting a level track using this underlay.

I suppose the purist will always use "scatter gravel"but this makes a decent job of it, and is less messy.If anything the edges look too perfect, but you can always add a small amount of "scatter gravel" to the edges, or even soil depending on your layout.The foam could also be painted brown.
The foam has indentations for the sleepers to sit in, and this is easy on a straight track, but on curves it is best to half fix a pin on the last layed, and then to stretch the foam sufficiently to allow the sleepers to sit correctly as you go round the curve. A little time absorbing, but it works.A spin off using this is that train noise sounds realistic.On points it is best to use the foam sheet that Hornby supply.

2.0 out of 5 stars Modeller 22 Oct 2010
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
It is not really clear initially that you have to buy 2 rolls of the underlay. Whilst it is well made and detailed the colour is a bit unrealistic. The finnish is a drab battleship grey. Perhaps an effort to replicate the real gravel colour might be worth a thought.
