Hi all,

I am looking for something to silence my baseboards when running my locos over it as it seemes to resonate the sound of the loco through the board even with ballasting, i have seen a product if i remember correctly like a compressed foam very dense but light but forgotten where,
i have an area of 6ft X 2ft 6" on one board and 6ft 4" X 2ft to cover and would like to keep cost down if possible.
Any ideas would be gratefully recieved.

Thanks

Resin W sounds like aliphatic glue i have used before which is water based but can be sanded once dry to a tough finish,
More thoughts on the silencing of my boards has come from my diy store with the use of underfloor tile insulation used for woodfloors.

Hi All,

I have found the solution to my problems, a trip to floors to go proved useful in the shape of underfloor insultation used on wooden floors it comes a metre wide and cut to any length you require of the roll, just over £17.00 for 13ft long.
3mm thick rubber with a silver backing.
Applied with loads of pva glue and stapled to my boards all that can be heard now is the motor no resonance from the boards, i did remove the staples from the boards once set to save problems later, as murphy's law always puts the staple where you need to drill etc for wires ..... lol
