    I think the foam that Frank is talking about is is not foam roadbed but foam sheet to replace the plywood sheet where the track is fastened to.

    I have seen Unitrack ballasted by putting a thin, almost "single layer" on the molded ballast. If done with skill it looks very very effective!

    Have you thought about cutting your old layout into 2-3 pieces to "modularize" it and reconnect the pieces when back down in the basement? Hate to see a good layout go to waste.

    I have sold at shows. If you have a lot to sell its best to bring a friend. As/if/when the shows gets busy, watch out for five-year discounts. Not saying it will happen but I've seen it.

    I think the "tank" in the Atlas/Tomix car is to hold the vacuumed debris and not for the cleaning solution.

    You can convert the car to DCC by hard wiring a decoder.

    There is no reason why an address of 500 should be any different than 509 or 510. All three should be programmed with Ad4 if Digitrax. Less than 128 address, use Ad2.
