A few weeks since my last update due to work and travel, but finally I have finished off the baseboards at the running level. All the trackwork has been printed off or penciled on just to make sure everything's going to work well. A few adjustments and basically i'm happy with it. The only two elements which will need a bit more thought are some curves at both narrow ends of the room which I have not allowed enough clearance on the track plan and the wooden base is slightly too narrow. So they'll be redone.
Something else i'll work out as I proceed to track laying is the distance between the running lines through the station is slightly to wide (5.5cm from midpoint to midpoint) I have done a little more research and working from the outside in I shall try to get it to 5cm or even 4.7cm which I read somewhere is prototypical. This will result in wider platforms.
My next decision, and then purchase, will be either cork or depron to use as underlay. I haven't yet decided which material to use to soften the noise. I have used both in the past but not at the same time so I can't really compare. Another option would be to just glue the track down to the wood. Any thoughts out there?
So track laying starts soon.
