Realistic 2-Rail Track and Switches for AF, Hi-Rail and Scale

American "S" Gauge track is code 172 precision rolled Nickel-Silver T rail. The solid Nickel-Silver rail comes weathered and has excellent electrical conductivity. The rail is a copper-nickel alloy which is superior in corrosion resistance.

It can be easily soldered and does not corrode, rust or oxidize making it excellent for use in all locations, from the very humid to the very dry. The solid rail absorbs sound better and makes for smooth quiet train running.

The scale-sized plastic ties are molded from UV resistant high quality ABS plastic and have a realistic wood grain pattern, color, height, width, length and spacing from real main lines that adds to the prototypical look of the track in a realistic fashion.

The track is accurately gauged for precision top-notch performance. The weathered rail joiners have a detailed six bolt head design and come installed from the factory on all track and switches for proper electrical conductivity.

A snap lock system securely holds the track sections together to ensure exact alignment and good electrical contact. When the track sections are joined together the tie spacing remains uniform and this appearance is an exclusive design found only with our track system. The 60" flex track bends easily to an infinite variety of curves with no templates or bend fixtures. Switches are closed frog allowing for operation of all S gauge wheel flanges.

Simply by removing some plastic ties from the track you can mount original AF Gilbert uncouplers, track trips, and mail pick-up stand.
