The Yellow Pelican Mining Co. - the baseboard part three

I have used some second-hand, 5mm thick ex-advertising foamboard signs to cover the whole baseboard. The foamboard was glued and stapled in place before I used strips of torn newspaper (applied over PVA glue) to give a smooth surface ready for paint and track laying.

I find that this torn newspaper is a perfect way to secure the foamboard and keep the weight of the layout down.

I then painted the whole board with some DULUX Endurance emulsion paint (two coats) that I had spare in the garage.

In the final image, you can see that I have marked out the track plan in readiness for the laying of the PECO O-16.5 'Crazy Track' (used for O gauge narrow gauge layouts).
