Incline Starters are wedges of high-density foam used to start your track on an incline or decline. Each piece in a package elevates/lowers the track to/from a designated number of inches within a 24" stretch, allowing for a smooth transition from one height to another.
To install, pin in place with Foam Nails and attach with Foam Tack Glue™ or the Low Temp Foam Glue Gun and Glue Sticks. Use alone or with Risers.

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.
Both adhesives work equally well. Foam Tack Glue is high tack white glue and works well as a contact cement. Low Temp Foam Glue bonds instantly and works well for a quicker installation.

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.
