    Here is some of my weekends work.
    I got the foam flooring in the train room.
    Put in about 80 sq ft. Man it's nice to stand on! Lowe's for about $85.00.

    Your thread title was irresistable! :) I like that flooring! Should be real comfortable.

    It has been something I think is usually overlooked on most railroads is long term standing comfort and most of us spend a long time in there.

    Great looking floor, never would've thought to use that stuff:thumb:

    After pounding the garage floor for the past couple of weeks working on the layout,
    my feet are saying "Fantastic idea!"

    That looks great.

    Could this go over old lino tile?
    Do you think I could put it under the existing layout?

    David , That is exactly what I did. They do not stick down and are very light , so they can be picked up in case you need to but once they are all attached they tend to stay in place. I just laid them down over my (part linolium and part concrete) floor and cut around the legs and doorway and such with a GOOD carpet knife. Buy one if you do not have one if you lay these.

    Good idea!! We usually focus on getting the layout up & running and give little thought to "creature comfort". This should make your stay in the train room a deal more pleasant.

    Fifer - I notice you're from Las Cruces, NM. My road is the Las Cruces & Portales RR. You might take a look at it. I've posted some pics in the Scenery forum (Gus' Layout party...)

    Gus , I like the pictures and it looks like you are off and running there.
    Were you from around here??
    My layout can be seen by clicking on the shop site below and then click on the ACT Logo in the upper left corner of the page.
    Thanks , Mike
