    I am trying to find the easiest way to secure my tracks (with attached roadbed) down onto the base platform (a prefab Noch Meran), so they will not move. Rokuhan makes makes track screws, but I find them very difficult to get through the roadbed and into the base platform. In addition my layout has 2 grades (I don't know the % of rise) and the Rokuhan screws are not long enough to go through the track roadbed and into the base.... which leaves a space under the roadbed.

    So, what are my alternatives? I could nail the roadbed down with these tiny nails I found on amazon. They are about the same diameter as the metal part of a pushpin and are long enough (19mm x 1.2mm) to secure all the tracks, including the grades. But, they are still very difficult to get through the roadbed. Or, I read somewhere to use double sided tape. Strong double sided tape and trim it down to the size of the roadbed.

    Any thoughts or suggestions? I would appreciate any input.....
    Thanks

    You might try using a hot glue gun. Small dabs should work. I have used it on n scale Kato Unitrak.
