Baseboards

After layout design, the baseboard is the most important feature of any model railway. They provide a solid base on which the tracks, buildings and scenery depend. Without a perfectly flat and rigid base the track could eventually become uneven which will cause poor running and possibly derailments and de-coupling. Not what we really want.

Unfortunately most railway modellers do not give sufficient consideration to the design and construction of their baseboards, and many are not skilled carpenters. A well finished, solid baseboard is an essential starting point for any model railway or diorama, and all of the parts listed within these baseboard categories will help everyone build that solid base.
