Any and all details on getting a model train set to run as quietly as possible? Table-building, Roadbed, track, wheels, etcInfo on sound deadening materialsI want the train itself to be as quiet as possible white running it while I’m in the room, and I need the sound of the train to not be heard in other rooms.Links to info, sites to purchase sound-deadening material, links to project logs from other users on message boards, etc?

I don’t care for or use cork but it will do a lot to quieten also use homosote for bench top. Get quality locomotives the cheaper ones tend to be very noisy. For scenery as in mountains use ceiling tiles. I am sure there is more but that is all I can think of right now. I am assuming you are speaking of HO.
