Sliced Cork Strips - Chamfered Edges


Sliced Cork strips for track base - with chamfered edge for realistic track base


Cork is a widely used track underlay. When sliced with a chamfer on its outer edge to represent the angled edge of the ballast on the prototype in not only looks impressive, but it is fast to lay, has an accurate profile and preserves your setting out markings. It may be curved to suit the plan required without further cutting.

Each pack contains 20 strips - each 2 feet long (610mm).

They are laid in pairs and therefore one pack will cover 10 x 2 ft = 20 feet of single track (6.1m). If used for double track then each pack will cover 10 feet (3.05m)

How to use - Mark a centre line of your proposed track position. Lay the un-chamfered edge against this line, so that when the second strip is laid against it, the joint still represents the ‘centre line’ for accurate track laying. 

For double track, a third strip is laid upside down with its chamfered edge lapping that of the first track, this gives correct minimum spacing of 46mm for 4mm scale double running lines. A fourth strip is added to complete the underlay with a chamfered edge on both side of the double track. 

We suggest that you never pin your track down; for this will tend to cause the sleepers to bend inwards and so reduce the gauge between the rails. A light smear of Evo-Stik, about every 3 to 4 sleepers is usually all that is required. If necessary, weights can be used to hold the track in position whilst the glue dries.
