How would we build our model railroads without Homasote? I have a supply purchased from The Home Depot but I’m down to one panel. I’ve checked every Home Depot store in my area and it is no longer in stock anywhere. One unhelpful clerk said he never heard of it.

So, today I went to the Web to find out how to get it. That led me to the Homasote site. How many of us devoted Homasote fans have ever learned anything about it? The site is rich with information. Homasote has been used to build passenger cars, as roofs on automobiles and as shelter for Admiral Byrd’s Antarctic expedition. There’s a nice video that explains the manufacturing process. And the company brags that it’s a green technology. It is. And it’s been around for a hundred years.
