How to Make Model Railroad Sub Roadbed

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


I wanted to pass along one of the ways I make my sub roadbed for my HO model railroad. I have used this method over many years and it has worked very well, allowing me to use up plenty of scrap plywood.

Please feel free to post any questions you may have and I will answer them as soon as I can.

Egor Tetenko says:

Go to woodprix webpage if you'd like to know how to build it. Good solutions for everyone I think

Antonetta Kowalewski says:

Nice movie. However you can make it yourself. Just google woodprix and learn how to do it easily.

Wonder about utilizing relatively thin alum plate for sub-roadbed??.

Looking to make a fairly light-weight 'helix donut protuberance structure' that would be attached to the exterior wall of a train layout built into an outdoor pre-fabed metal stowage shed

Outstanding, I put my hat off

Daniel Padova says:

Excellent video. I've made many trammel point compasses over the years but never thought about the offset pivot point you use. By the way, is that an octagon face Plumb hammer laying on the table ?

Thank you for the nice video. But to my eyes spline road bed looks easier.

Just what I was looking for. About to embark on a N scale U shape layout ,4' x 11' with two 2'x3 extensions. and that jig is just the ticket.

Mark Loppe says: basic but eye opening,,,thank you….

Nice job. I use 1/4 inch PVC 8 foot long fl for all my roadbed. Bends easily and ver sturdy. Then 4 inch 1×1 cedar attached between Pvc. Did my Garden railroad and used for HO double track layout.

Daniel Lee says:

Awesome idea. I'm going to make up the jig tomorrow. I keep referring to the video too. Thanks Geoff. 

JW Hammer says:

Great idea, thanks for posting. I wonder if the layout tool you developed could be adapted to a router eliminating the "marking" step, all together. Has this already been tried?
