Hi all

So I'm helping a mate to build a layout that for WAF reasons will have to be stacked on its side against a wall from time to time. While he's playing with his ideas for a layout, he doesn't want to fix the track down permanently, but also does not want the track to slide off when he puts it away....

So has anyone got any bright ideas (or better still, proven methods) for fixing track temporarily. The best I could come up was to use velcro, which seems to stick well to the underside of the track?

cheers

Paul

I would go for a bead of "silastic" caulking along the edges of the track.
The type you buy in a cardboard tube with a nozzle, and you have a metal frame squeeze gun.
Easy to apply, good adhesion, easy to remove.

If you are prepared to mess about a bit you can get very strong magnets (N30) that are quite cheap about 6mm dia diskks and have 0.5kg pull.

i used screws with a washer head and screwed next to the track to hold it down. you only need to to fix every 700mm or so to keep it attached - mine is stored standing against a wall when its not being used.

In the past i used carpet tacks this worked for about 8 years and would have worked longer but I lost the track to fire. The carpet tacks ae called Tacks, black in colour and about half an inch long. I nailed through the track and into chip wood.
