CB-START

New product

Over 40 meters of HO/OO pre-cut cork beds for UK geometry tracks such as Hornby, Peco Setrack and Branchline.

A revolutionary, easy way to apply track beds to your layout.

All cork-beds are numbered similar to Hornby and Branchline codes.
If you have a Hornby curve track R8261 or R8262, you need CB8261-2.
If you have a Branchline 36-877 or 36-878 Express Point you need CB8077-8.

Peco Setrack codes are different but equivelant.
For example, if you have Peco Setrack ST-231 "Third Radius Double Curve (505mm radius)" you need CB-608-9.

More info

Many curve and straight beds are designed "double sized".

For example, CB-608-9 comes as 10 pcs of "Double Size Third Radius Curve" bed which makes 20 pcs of "Standard Size Curve" beds.
If you cut from the lines in the middle you get 20 pcs of Standard Size Third Radius Curve which is equal to Hornby R608.

Thickness of the cork beds are 2 mm which is perfect for ballast laying and the edges are not beveled intentionally to prevent ballast slipping down on beveled edges before gluing.

And the result is even better compared to beveled edged beds as you can see on the videos.

Notes:

When you use Proses Authentic Limestone Ballasts you don't need to wet the ballast before gluing as is it made of real stone and washed before packed.

Instead of using an eye dropped or syringe to glue the ballast you can use Proses Ballast Glue Applicators as well.
