Laying down track is an essential component of creating your model railroad scenery. It’s also fun when you can get creative and add as much or as little detail as you want!

In this video, Allen demonstrates how to quickly and easily lay down track without using any spikes or nails. First things first, you want to draw a straight line for the placement to ensure accuracy when it comes time to lay down your track. By using a rubber roller and applying a little pressure, you can adhere the track to the roadbed to make sure the track is flat and securely applied to the platform. Finish off your track by adding some ballast and sweeping over with a brush to ensure the authentic railroad look and feel.
