Thank you for there response, that PDF is great and has answers to many of my questions.
I think I am going with a PVC ladder system for the sub roadbed, It will be a lot of work, but maybe easier to level and maintain later.
I purchased a lot of used LGB track, and would like to use as much of it as possible. I have 22 R5 curves, 48 R2 curves and 12 R1 curves. From my S gauge railroading there are a couple of places where I have mixed 2 different radius curves, and it works. What are your thoughts on doing this?
