Hi everyone,im moving on a little with my project and need some advice. I have the base ready to be built for the 00 layout, now im going to do the basic layout you get with the flying scotsman set the track mat set up,and was wondering about pasting tables as a way of fixing the base too, so that when i do extend,as it seems i can now iv looked closely at my attic space, I can get another pasting table to do this so the height is the same. My question is will the pasting table be ok for the job, taking into acount ill reinforce the legs and brace it too? Thanks.

Thanks for all the responses guys. My base is going to be made of slats of imitation wood flooring glued together to size, it actually worked out perfect as far as size goes, matching the template trak mat layout sheet that came in my set, then im reinforcing with 2x1 inch timber all round and sectioned in the middle to keep it firm, its this that im thinking of resting on the table or whatever is eventually used, as its going in a fixed place and not going to be moved around once its in place. Eventually i will be extended from it as i have found that there will be more room than i hoped,but id like to keep the trak mat design as i like the look of it, also it keeps it pretty simple for me to get more familiar with everything, as im a total starter in this, never done this before.
As for the top alastairq, I have a sheet of ply that i can fix on the top, which i think would be stable enough with some bracing of the legs too?
Just curious, but how bad is the noise with out anything under the tracks. Im about half way with my base board and wondered how important this sound proofing is? Cheers.
