Nice trackwork Dan.

Any particular reason for using 5mm foamboard underneath the cork ?
I'd thought of doing similar but I was concerned about the foamboard getting crushed after a few weeks ops and "accidents".
I made up up a small section of track to try it out but was surprised to find the noise level was higher with the foamboard,
maybe my particular style of track laying.
Or maybe Starbucks ties are louder than AnyOtherBurger's ??

I see you are using the "moveable sleeper/tie" method of operating stretcher bar.
I've tried various other methods in 43.5:1 Brit O gauge but none look totally right.
I'm currently working in 48:1 On30 "Bachmann" gauge (31.2"),
and the moveable tie seems to be the only strong operating stretcher bar.
Have you any other ideas ? 

Regards,   Michael
