The Hornby R638 Roll Of Underlay is a Hornby railway accessory.

This accessory can be used in addition to any Hornby train set. Designed to fit the width of single track with indentations to fit the sleepers.

Strip is flexible to follow any straight or curved track, and is easily cut to make junctions at points and cross-overs. Resilient foam underlay fits under track to simulate a full-size ballast track bed.

It also damps out vibrations, so trains run more quietly and these is less chance of 'wheel bounce' to spoil performance.

Cut the underlay to shape with scissors.

Length: Approx. 4880mm long

Manufacturer: Hornby

    Did the job.

    This did the jb well and I don't think I could have found a better product to do it but it was a bit tricky around the curves. It would probably be easier if it was plain rather than having a template for the track because it can't be matched properly around curves or junctions.

    Good Product - watch the measurements

    This product is great, but make sure you are working out the length correctly - 4880mm is 4.88m! Don't make the mistake I made and not order enough - Doh!
