Hi All,

In a venture away from my N guage i am looking for some HO peco track the eqiuvelent to their code 55 with the rail half buried in the sleepers in flexitrack and electorofrog points as the code 83 flexitrack only seems to come in boxes and not sold singly.

Images of the end of the track would be helpful to help me decide on which type i require as i will be ordering it via mail order.

Many thanks.

Nick.

The small pictures should enlarge when you click on them Nick. I'll see if I can find some closer close-ups.

Nick, to my knowledge, there is no Peco HO track buried into sleepers like their N scale Code 55.
I do not know of any other brand that buries part of the rail into the sleeper base either.

That's a very interesting site. (http://www.westportterminal.de/manualturnout.html) The descriptions of the requirement(?) to modify Peco electrofrog points maybe explains why I can't get a DCC loco to go through some points and a single slip without shorting. Can I be clear on this - every point needs to have the kind of modification the site suggests to ensure correct operation? If so I am going to have to find someone to do this for me.

No, you do not have to modify points if all of your rolling stock has correct back-to-back measurements but it is a recommendation so that any rolling stock that is not correct will not cause the section to short out.
