Howdy. I just got a 302AC starter set from a friend and would like to set it up on my 4x8 test loop. Is the two rail Lionel Fastrak a new item, or has it been out there a while? Any experience? I am interested in seeing if I can put a loop inside my 042 three rail loop. This makes three Flyer sets, how many means I am hooked? Thanks!

Hi Luke. The AF Fastrack is relatively new. The only curve that they have released so far is a 20" radius which would be 40" diameter if you compare it to the O gauge O42 track. I believe the tracks are measured on the centerline so it may or may not fit inside of your O42 loop. I don't have O42 or I would test for you.

Lionel s FasTrack is new.  It is similar to S Helper Services S-Trax,(rail height is the same) which handles old Flyer with no problems. 

 

There's two previous threads, the firs comparing the two track systems, the second on joining the two together:

I only have a couple of straight sections of FasTrack, but based on my experiences with S-Trax, you should have no operational problems.
