As I work on my Tinplate/O Gauge layout, I've begun more carefully evaluating which track to use. In this regard, I'm seriously considering the USA Track, possibly the 5 Rail for the outer loop.
Over time, I have segregated a number of sections of 3-Rail SG track from various sets that I had purchased over the years. I'm sure that it is a combination of both age and mileage (mostly for me), but I have found that the assembly of the 3-Rail SG track sections to be very difficult if not almost impossible, even though the sections are in brand new condition ( time for a "T Tracker"...).
My first question, is there a product that would make the assembly of the 3-Rail SG easier, as I know that many lubricants are not very compatible with ultimately operating the trains?
Since I Plan to have this layout running for a long time (hopefully!), I am not adverse to purchasing new track. In this regard, I do like the GarGraves track a lot, but do not wish to bend the SG curves.
My second question is, given your experience, and, the current SG track available in 2020, which SG track would you recommend now?
