Works just fine, but make sure that you get the kind that can be used with foam.  The other stuff will melt the foam while you watch...

Using strong, aggressive adhesives that result in a permanent unbreakable bond between track and the sub roadbed means the track is there forever and that it will be impossible to remove and reuse in the future.

When I was working in the smaller scales, I used a variety of small nails and / or relatively 'soft adhesives'. These adhesives can be used sparingly in 'spot' applications rather than running large, long continuous beads. This allows the (expensive) track to be lifted without destroying it when you want or need to revise the layout or build a new layout. Some of the contact type fabric adhesives are perfect for this application.

Happy RRing,

Craft type hot melt works well, too. And it can be softened for removal with a handheld hair dryer.- Mike

Low temp hot glue is the answer. I use Woodland scenics works great. If you need to redo you can carefully cut the bond and the glue will peel off and you can restart.
