Model Railroad Sound Deadening
« on: January 29, 2019, 09:54:13 PM »
I am creating a model rail road and want to deaden the sound generated when the train runs on the rails.  The benchwork is made with 2x4 and 2x2 members.  The top surface is made with 1/2 inch plywood.  On this I would like to place sound deadening material.  I was thinking about Homasote 440 Sound Barrier.  On this I would lay the track.  The track I use is made by Lionel and is the Fastrack line.  It has a hollow plastic roadbed that carries the noise of the train running on the track.  Is there a better material to use other than Homasote 440 Sound Barrier?
