Our track is designed to look like as much like the prototype as possible and therefore has the sleepers spaced correctly and of scale length.
This is important, especially in OO gauge, as the spacing of the sleepers helps to give the impression that the rails are further apart and therefore goes some way to disguise the fact that OO is in effect HO track and is narrower than the prototype (4'3" when it should be 4" 81/2"). See photo for comparison between C&L and Peco track.
Flexitrack is available in 3-bolt chair form, with either nickel silver or steel bullhead rail of code 75 section. This is equivalent to BS95R in the prototype
It is important that the sleepers are glued well across their full width. Evo-Stik type contact adhesives are suitable for this.
For those who possess quantities of Code 75 bullhead rail, we also supply Track Base on its own for you to make up your own flexitrack.
UK Customers - we no longer offer the option of having rail or track cut in half. The savings achieved by being able to send to the customer with Royal Mail rather than with a Courier used to be considerable. However the difference in price is no longer as significant following two prices increases imposed upon us by Royal Mail during the last 12 months. It is very time consuming for our staff who are often struggling to get orders out each day by the deadlines imposed by Royal Mail and our Couriers, and this just adds to that pressure meaning that in some case other orders are delayed as a result. In the circumstances we have therefore decided to withdraw this service.
Outside of the UK - we are prepared to still off this service to customers outside of the UK as the savings can still be considerable when sent by the postal service rather than a courier. We no longer list cut rail or track as separate products. If you are ordering from outside of the UK and require these items to be cut in half, please ask for this service in the 'Comments Box' situated on the 'Checkout Page'.
