Baseboard sizes

Rate this question



Itching to get started on building up baseboards for the other halfs layout but was wondering what sizes to do them. We're planning an 8ft x 6ft layout so would 4 4x3 boards or 2 6x4 boards be advisable?? The layout won't be getting moved once setup and will be in the middle of a room so plenty of space to walk around it.

Also what is the preferred height for layouts?? There will be kids allowed in to look at it operating but under supervision

If you build them properly and braced etc to avoid sagging either size is good

Regarding height, I'm a great believer in having them at 'eye level', but being 6'4 its not something I often get to experience. The closer to eye level the better as you don't look at real trains from a helicopter or cherry picker....
