Ninco track fixing

A bit of help please.

We have just built a new bridge section for our club circuit (4 lane Ninco) and i'm tinking of fixing it down to the ply bridge and base board.

The reason behind this is track tends to raise at the joints just enough to lift the cars out of the slot (not all the time, but more than i would like).

I had thought of hot gun glue, but thought i would see if you had any better suggestions?

many thanks

Silicone caulking seems to be a very common USA method for holding track down 'semi-permanently'. I haven't tried it yet, so am not sure of what grade of sealant should be used. This stuff is pretty expensive so I would suggest starting out with a small tube of the cheapest you can find!

Another point: rather than putting blobs under the track, where it is out of sight, I believe they run a very thin bead along the outer bottom edges of the track, forming a neat line and ensuring minimal possibility of the section warping. Again, no first-hand experience to date, but it sounds sensible and economical. Hopefully someone with actual hands-on will comment.
