Incline/Decline Sets are the ideal way to alter the elevation of your track quickly and easily. Each set includes the high-density foam pieces necessary to raise or lower the elevation of your track. Incline/Decline Sets come in either 2%, 3% or 4% grades.
Sets can start an incline at 0" and reach a maximum height of 4 1/2" (11.4 cm). Declines can start at a maximum height of 4 1/2" (11.4 cm) and lower to 0". Actual measurements depend on the grade used.
NOTE: One Set only includes foam pieces necessary either to create an incline OR create a decline. One Set cannot do both. You will need two Sets to create both an incline and a decline on your layout.
To install Incline/Decline Sets, pin in place with Foam Nails and attach with Foam Tack Glue™ or the Low Temp Foam Glue Gun and Glue Sticks.
See how Inclines take your track from one level to another in both straight and curved areas, without you having to make the complicated calculations usually required to create grades and curves.

CAUTION: Cutting tools recommended. Use with care.
When modeling in O scale, Inclines and Risers need to be placed side-by-side to double their width.
Risers and Inclines are 2 1/2" wide. You will need to install 2 sets side-by-side for any scale double track.
No, you do not need to use Risers under Inclines, but using both allows you to increase the elevation of the track throughout the layout to create lower surrounding areas easily, such as creek beds and ravines. For further information and instruction about using Risers and Inclines, watch the how-to videos on our website and consider purchasing the SubTerrain® Manual.
Our SubTerrain® Lightweight Layout System is made of a high-density foam material that can withstand a lot of weight. It's designed for this application.
