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.
Incline Sets are a packaged set of foam inclines that create a pre-determined 2%, 3% or 4% incline within a specific distance. Incline Starters contain from 6 to 8 two-foot sections of 2%, 3% or 4% foam inclines, each beginning at 0%. Starters are used in combination with sets and risers to simplify the construction of even the most complex layouts.

You can add a switchback (or extreme incline) to your layout following the same techniques used to model a SubTerrain track area. Start by constructing an incline base with a 1 " Foam Sheet. Construct the support with 1/2 " Foam Sheet and add 1/2 " incline pieces for the track. Fill the contours with newspaper wads, cover with Plaster Cloth and apply terrain products as usual.
We wanted a foam product that was lightweight and easy to use. You can cut SubTerrain quickly and neatly, it will not crumble or fall apart, and working with SubTerrain high-density foam rquires no previous modeling experience. When cut with a Hot Wire Foam Cutter, it does not emit toxic fumes.
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.
Yes. SubTerrain foam products are made from unique, high-density foam and will not crumble or fall apart.
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.
