"excellent"
Tim (Pittsburgh, PA)
I have worked with this item in both n scale and ho scale and it is very easy to place on any layout that you are working on

 
"Honestly, A Bit Disappointed"
jason.ch.hill
This is the go-to roadbed as far as I can tell and I have seen amazing modelers swear by it. So, I don't know if I got a bad batch, or if I just misunderstood but on nearly every piece the diagonal cut down the middle that forms the sloping sides was really, really rough. At some points it doesn't even form a slope and I had to fashion my own. I will give it another go because again I have seen so many others use it.

 
"My choice for every layout I've ever built"

My preferred subsurface for layouts is plywood; however, cork road bed is a must, in my opinion, on foam too. Although cork must be glued to foam, it can be stapled to plywood which is faster and easier. When used on foam, flex track can be laid using nails which will embed securely in the cork to hold until ballasting is complete and dry. This product comes with beveled edges and a split down the middle. It is intended that the cork be split apart (it's very easy) with each half being glued or stapled against the track line. Even tight radii are easily circumnavigated with this product in this manner. I prefer to use only half pieces, centering them on the track line with the bevel turned down. This way the ballast forms the fall, not the cork. I think this creates a more natural looking fall along the edges of your track (see pictures). More ballast is used this way, but you make up the difference by using only half the cork.
