What is the best wood to use for sleepers?  

 

Layout will be a detailed indoor layout.  16mm scale (32mm gauge).  

 

Ideally looking for something that is similar size to full size sleepers, I work it out to be approx 13mm x 7mm, (width being more important than depth)

 

A realistic plastic sleeper would be ok, as long it is the right size.

Intentio do some laser cut wood ones. They offer differing widths to cater for the different companies and also crossing timbers

Hi

 

B&Q do 12mm by 6mm pine strip - fine for indoors.  Buy the 2400mm lengths and cut to 72mm pieces to represent half-length standard gauge sleepers.

 

Regards.
