Glad to hear your doing what you want and enjoying it.


Was your earlier comment meant tongue-in-cheek?
QUOTE (Gwent rail @ 27 Jul 2006, 09:40) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Sorry John, like the look of Tillig track and use International Models on a regular basis, but as I'm modelling 4mm OO gauge, HO track is a non starter for me.If not, note that Peco Code 100 is also HO track, as is all 4mm OO track (16.5mm).

QUOTE Tiling track..... Rail fixing is very un British prototypical . Britain uses Pandrol spring rail fixing on main line track often found on both Wooden and Concrete sleeper versions and some still have metal keys holding the rail into the chair, not some sort of plate either side of the rail. Also, I've never seen green concrete sleepers either! (May be just a photo error perhaps?) True, but you have to look hard from normal viewing distances. Peco track uses chairs, not found on the real mainline anymore.
In every other respect, Tillig is the best RTR HO/OO 16.5mm track available other than from specialist suppliers like Exactoscale and SMP; ... and with points!.

Green concrete? I wondered about that, but I assure you, it's only the photo. Better than Peco's lame concrete sleepered variety.

QUOTE (Gwent rail @ 28 Jul 2006, 09:19) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>...yes my comment was meant to be a sarcastic dig at the total anomaly that is Peco Streamline. Just because the gauge is wrong, I don't see why the sleeper width and the sleeper spacing need to be a cock up as well. Surely after so many years, Peco could have amended these, as the "new" version would still be "plug in compatible" with the current design.
Absolutely agree with you there!
