Re: Help an old newbie


I think you want extruded polystyrene. It comes in several colors depending on the manufacturer. It is not covered in foil like Styrofoam.


What big box stores are near you?






Do ever get old, you will regret it for the rest of your life.

I want to put "soft" Styrofoam base under single track mainline on my around the room 2' shelf HO layout. All I can find w/in 100 miles is 3/4" insulation board wrapped on both sides w/foil. Can't use this? Will screw up my wiring would it not?

Thank you for any suggestions.
