Although you must be careful with the "thin" part of the riser, as it has to be to be able to go from ground level to 1/2 inch, it is an excellent product. Once covered with plaster closth or other materials it is very strong! I have used this product many times, and also other Woodland Scenic inclines for other layouts. I highly suggest using this product as it is light weight, easy to use, and the math needed to create a rise or incline is already done for you. AND you don't have to be an expert at woodworking to create the ramps to raise your railroad to the needed heights required by many layout designs! Have bought before, and will buy again if I create modifications or yet another layout someday!
