Just looking for your thoughts. I'm getting ready to build my first American Flyer layout, a small one. As I previously posted I've already bought the postwar trains that I wanted, track, switches, accessories, etc.
I also bought a supply of rubber roadbed, and herein lies my question. I know that I want to use traditional track, permanently mounted, but I'm not sure if I want to use the road bed or just the tracks with added ties. Noise is not an issue, I like the sound of toy trains running. Your input here would be appreciated.
If I use the roadbed, is double sided carpet tape a good method of mounting. Using staples as recommended just sounds weird to me.
