Howard.

Hi Howard,
It appears that your author, Mr Somewhere is, at best, woefully misinformed.

 Or is there, perhaps,  a dod of turn o' the year mischief  in the air ?  :D

This Matte Medium is certainly more flexible than the PVA I'm used to.

How about New Street by Jim Smith-Wright, or Wadhurst

... or even Kings Cross or Preston.

But no, none of those can possibly be Main Line layouts, because no one has ever built one in P4.... [Ha Ha]


Best Wishes,

Howard

Time of course can show up any number of unexpected and unwanted effects. For instance we are also finding that plasticard can shrink over time

Hi Tony,

Again, lots of interesting things here - Green Street again is an impressive layout - albeit I have only seen it via the CLAG site [can you prompt the chaps to update the pics of the layout by the way?]

I had not thought about the use of Sundeala as an underlay - it seems to be an idea which had some poularity! I gave up on it as a baseboard material after trying it on an abortive 7mm layout - as you suggest - it went all shapes!

Regarding plasticard, about 35 years ago I bought a large sheet of white 20 thou, which never got used and I still have it.
Even though it has never been anywhere near any solvent, it is now the colour of GWR coach cream and is so brittle it splits under its own weight. Perhaps there is no such thing as an "inert" material.

Perhaps getting back "On Topic" and thinking about your Green St experience - I am wondering if there is a truism that the more layers of materials you put under the sleepers, the more opportunity there is for swelling etc?

Best Wishes,

Howard.
