Can anyone suggest and easy and inexpensive way of giving my layout some diffrent levels, making hills etc with wire mesh im ok with, but making track go up and other such things im stuck with as in raising the level of fields, buildings etc etc.
Wire mesh is way to heavy and rarely used here. We use either foam or more often balled up newspaper and plaster impregnated cloth. This stuff is a lot faster to use. The risers are made of foam as well.
Trust me on this one. Stopped using wire mesh about 30 years ago.
May I suggest some test of rolling stock before planning and building gradients. I had to redesign my layout as the newer locos from Hornby with loco drive and without traction tyres run very nice but are not very strong on gradients. Now thats a reason to use two locos on one train.
