GOOP is advertised as a contact cement.  It is solvent based so you can get a little 
light headed when using it in enclosed spaces.  It goes on thick and stays pliant 
when cured which is why I used it with my TTS.  They sell different formulations 
geared towards what your trying to stick together.  I used the one for carpentry 
(i.e. wood).  So far adhesion on my tracks seems to be holding up well.
