I'm planing out my layout and what it's gonna cost to buy all the track I need and i need several os Atlas O's 1 1/4 track section. The one thing I'm not sure about is on Atlas's website ther list the track as "1-1/4” Straight (4pcs./blister)" Do they mean there's four of the 11/4" tracks or that there's 4 pecies for the section?

4 pieces in a pack. Its the smallest piece you can buy.
There are four 1-1/4" sections of track in the package.
Yes to the above!
ok just wanted to check. Thanks Everyone!
You may find these track tie end pieces useful. It allows for custom lengths. Part 6057
The 1 1/4s are incredibly fragile, as there's only a few ties holding the rail in. I've had a number of them where even a slight jolt while assembling them has knocked a rail off. It can be put back on with some super glue, but if this is a "fitter" as part of a larger run, you're better off getting a 40" rigid straight and just cutting off what you need (for example, cut a 21.25" piece, rather than 2 10"s and a 1.25). If you're screwing it down, you dont need the tie plate ends either, just cut off the connecting sprues on the bottom between the ties so that you can slide on the rail joiners.
