To keep the nail head from making  a hump in the cork, I trimmed out a small hole for the nail head. The nails go up into two holes in the car frame, fitting loose to allow the pad to float up and down as needed.
Both kids and adults have enjoyed the hobby of building and playing with model railroads and trains for years. Maybe your doctor has told you to pick up a hobby to lower your blood pressure, maybe a friend mentioned it and it sounds fun. A question I get constantly asked by people considering model trains as their new hobby is “Which model train scale (or gauge) is best?” This is a great question, but, let’s clear up a common mistake model train beginners tend to make… And that is to confuse scale and gauge. I was just wondering about the weight the masonite helix will impose on the layout benchwork.
It seems very labor intensive, but on the flip side I am a great fan of insane craftmanship. Of course, now it occurs to me that your suggestion would achieve the same thing structurally, and provide simpler construction and better protection as well. If you made the outside and inside boards a couple of inches wider than the rest so that the first and last spline were a couple inches above the rest of the roadbed, that would keep engines from falling off the helix. The only company that is still consistently releasing new decorated kits is Accurail (I'm speaking HO here) Every one else seems to have transitioned to RTR releases.
Union Station Products offers a number of interesting passenger car side kits that are either laser-cut or CNC machined out of styrene sheet. Come by my Up Dunes Junction blog to see more, as well as the occasional railfan pic and other news.

I had scratchbuilt a styrene tender, on the frame of a Roundhouse 0-6-0 switcher sloped back tender I had around while I awaited the locomotive's arrival.
Somehow I began a conversation with Ken Rickman, who suggested I look into the Tallulah Falls Railroad. Ken supplied this photo of Southern #202 before becoming TFRR #78, with an old time tender that could be the one I scratchbuilt.
The scratch-built tender and my main reference, #78 0n the cover, with the more modern tender in tow. Ken and I began discussing the Southern cab design and he provided me with his carefully researched Southern Railway cab drawing in HO scale. I am awaiting for: the new tender shell, the new lead truck spoked wheelset, two old-time air pumps with hanging brackets, Sunbeam generator. I will make: water, steam and air piping, catwalk steps to pilot, cab, step, and tender handrails, pilot and tender coupler bar, constant reversing lighting diodes. Now that I know I can turn the dome, exploratory surgery to plan ahead on the operation is easier to contemplate. Preparing the list above forced me to think of the process, and there will be plenty of Bondo work required: I hate these huge lugs most kit makers cast for the handrail stanchions on the boiler top. BTW, I may take you up on the sand dome base idea: even though I did it in a hurry, I could tell that sanding down the boiler curve on the bottom of solid rod is not going to be easy. Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers.
The design is simple, a 1x2 for the frame, added trucks and couplers, then a cork cleaning pad glued onto a old car weight.

I push one ahead of a loco, then a second car with Liquid Wrench on the pad, then a third car trailing with a dry cork pad.
Model railroad magazines provide an avenue for which to meet those model railroad enthusiasts by publishing events and clubs. For about $160 you can buy a great model train set which includes digital command control, something that was more than three times the price a short time ago.
During the assembly of the splines and use of the spring clamps (some of my 73 clamps can be seen in the distance), the glue squeezes out both the top (aka stalagmites) and the bottom of the splines (aka stalactites).
It is amazing how we now use laminated materials in almost all forms of construction and design. These build up using core kits and details from Train Station Products (which USP also provides).
In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois).
You might want to consider tapering the ends of your pads a bit to allow for any irregularities in rail height; especially at grade crossings or turnouts, etc. I would fix one section of the track and the next day the train would derail on another section.
I checked out your FB page and saw that you are making trailers to go behind the powered unit.
