    I have a reasonably large OO gauge layout in my garden which has been operating for over 20 years. It uses Peco 100 flexitrack and insulfrog points. The track has been laid on marine ply put down over the concrete base. This eventually has to be renewed despite being pickled in every anti- rot treatment you can think of. I am now putting down a base of cement mortar over the concrete and this is having 3.5mm thick roofing felt laid over it. The track itself is laid over ordinary roofing felt to represent ballast. From a distance this looks quite good. That gives me about 4.5mm to take the track pins. I will then have a base that cannot rot. We will see how this works out.

    The layout forms the centerpiece of our charity garden days when we get about 500 people. Children love playing with the railway and they are permitted to do this to the full. The amount of damage is extremely little.
    Next years main event on the last Sunday in June will be our 20th.
