Best way for underlay...

Right then, the baseboard is set up, and now the track can go down. The only trouble is the noise.
I tried putting cork down forst, but when I pin down the track, the noise is transferered via the pin to the baseboard. Running Trains is therefor very very loud. Any Ideas here ???

P.s. I was using Fleischmann Track ( As I live in the Fatherland ) but all of the new Thomas range just don't like it !! So I am selling it all and reverting back to good old Hornby ( I have loads of Tri-ang stuff, so thats why I need the Hornby stuff....)

I think the best way is stick the cork to the base board and the track to the cork then ballast all in one go if you want to seal it afterwards with diluted PVA then you can but you shouldn't need to no pins to worry about.
