P4 Track Base - Exactoscale (Fast Track)
The Exactoscale equilivent of the C&L trackbase but thick (1.6mm). Available for both bullhead (wood looking sleepers) and flat bottom rail (concrete looking sleepers). Comes in packs of 2 metres.
In P4 there is an additional track base that is 'gauge widened' for use on curves.
P4 - 'Plain Line' track panels
These panels represnet either pre 1st world war 45 foot panels or later 60 panels of track. They are in effect sleepers spaced correctly, but with the moulded chair (unlike the 'fast track' bases) which enables the modeller to fit whichever chairs are appropriate for their model. We offer 2, 3 or 4 bolt chairs (see the chairs category for more details on which companies used which type).The panels come with extra wide sleepers adjacent to the rail joint, but are usable for railway companies that did not use wider sleepers. Simply chop off the wide sleeper.' Links' to detailed instructions appear after the next photo.
Also available is a version in P4 for curves where the number of sleepers is increased to 26 instead of the normal 24 per panel. The picture has a check rail added for additional interest!
