HO Scale Noise Killer Roadbed

HO Scale Noise Killer Roadbed



This one came out of left field. Just for fun, we wondered if we could make HO scale roadbed that would reduce track noise so you can hear your beautiful Rapido sound locomotives. We think we’ve pulled it off.

Our new Noise Killer Roadbed is available in both ‘main line’ (3.5mm depth) and ‘branch line’ (2mm depth) profiles. It is made of a dense foam product that feels more like rubber and can be curved down to broad curves without being split into two halves. If you have tight curves you can easily cut it down the centre with a sharp Olfa or scissors.


Like all foam roadbed, it’s best to use Noise Killer Roadbed on layouts made from extruded foam insulation or another smooth surface rather than directly on plywood. Whatever your base, you’ll see how our roadbed drastically reduces wheel noise.

The main line roadbed is 1 7/8″ wide at the base and 1 1/2″ wide at the top.
The branch line roadbed is 1 7/8″ wide at the base and 1 9/16″ wide at the top.

Main Line roadbed MSRP: $9.95 for 25 feet
Branch Line roadbed MSRP: $9.95 for 25 feet
