are you planning on screwing from the top thru the track into the baseboard or just from the bottom into the bottom of the track?

I thought it should be from the top into the baseboard like I did with Lionel Super O track many years ago.

You can use small friend head screws, but these will stick up some.

You can do a tiny countersink and use flat head screws to get the screw head flush with the surface. Little dab of paint then to cover it up if you want
