    I was wondering, should I use cork or foam roadbed? I've have other layouts and I've never used it.

    right now i use WS foam road bed best thing i ever did it is very cheap for only 8$ for 24ft.

    If you're hand spiking on wood ties....homasote
    If you're laying flex track.....homasote or cork
    If you have no problem glueing track down (no spikes/nails)...foam

    I still prefer plywood subroadbed(although I do see a lot positive about spline roadbed), on risers, on open grid benchwork/ homasote/ flex track, balasted, and weathered..................but then, I remember sawdust, coffee grounds, and lichen, as primary scenic materials. :D
