Woodland Scenics SubTerrain System

Last modified date

As featured on last Friday’s ‘The Great Model Railway Challenge’ on Channel 5, the Woodland Scenics SubTerrain system is the perfect base for an easy yet effective layout. The system, which does not require complicated calculations or expensive power tools to use, consists of sturdy, durable and lightweight foam components that take the guesswork out of designing and building a layout. A selection of affordable, easy to use tools & adhesives are also available to help simplify the process and work harmoniously with the system. Watch the tutorial playlist below to help give you a head start on SubTerrain system.

The team which utilised the SubTerrain system, Porthcawl Railway Club, were the first to have a locomotive moving around their layout showing the speed and effectiveness the foam components can be assembled and used. The flexible foam bed can bend into your desired corner radius and pinned into place using Foam Nails (WST1432) whilst waiting for the glue to dry. Available as part of the range is a selection of risers in various lengths and gradients allowing you greater accuracy for your layout when transitioning from a lower trackbed to something elevated.
