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.

As mentioned pasting tables are rather flimsy - I did a small N-Gauge many years ago using a flush plywood door which was quite sucessful apart from the noise ! - the door acted like a soundbox.

Personally I would use a more robust base with some closed cell foam to stop noise transmission down into the house.
Some people find noise transmission a problem, others do not - probably best to try an experiment a bit.
