Hello to all, I am about to commence building an S guage layout with American Flyer rolling stock and AF turnouts, Gargraves flextrack and some old Gilbert track as well. I was planning to make the roadbed from sawcut wood strips covered with sandpaper but I'm asking the group for suggestions on any commercial roadbed products that may work well for my 'sort of' scale Tinplate railroad. This is a project I'll be sharing with my 11 year old son, so I'd be looking for easy to use over realistic appearance. And I'd rather not spend the dollars for Gilbert rubber roadbed. Thanks in advance all.
