      Hello Jill,

      Thank you for your patience while I asked the experts, here is the reply:

      Sometimes you need to use shims along with a good level as you lay your track. Let me know how it goes.

    What wood/etc. do you recommend for modeling a bridge for an HO track that would be sturdy enough to hold an engine? I am thinking of making a small/short bridge.

      Hello Bill,

      Thank you for being patient while I asked the expert, here is his reply:

      Personally, I like to stay with the Kadee brand and the metal couplers, not plastic. Kadee are just the best. Let me know how you do.
