Hi Brian

Sorry to ask a daft question, but how are the magnets fixed into position. ie. by under the track do you mean glued to the underside of the baseboard, or hidden within the ballast?

Best Regards
Mark

Blue Sky is absolutely spot on about fixing the magnets. In one direction the magnets will repel eachother, turn around one magnet and then the two or more magnets will happily stick together. I've never found the need to glue or fix the magnets in place, they just sit in the recess made in the underlay or cork,etc. As already said the glued ballast does the rest.
Cheers, Brian.
I was thinking from the point of view that my layout is already built, ballasted scenery etc. and trying to avoid ripping up track etc. to fit them. Thats why I mentioned the "under the basboard scenario". (it's 9mm Sundeala).

Mark
