Scenic Express sells a "Pennsy" Double-Track Cut-Block Portal and also an "extra wide" version. These are made of light-weight urethane foam. I don't understand why you don't want a "foam one." I have a single-track version on my layout (see photo) and it is satisfactory to me. MTH also makes plastic portals. Just trying to help.

Thanks for taking the time to reply and send the photo. That certainly looks very nice on your layout! I’m going to order 1 of their double track extra wide versions and see what it looks like before I decide.

thanks,

Every once and awhile I see the K-line double track cast tunnel portals for sale on ebay. My 2 cents.

Thanks for the reply! I saw the k-line version on eBay some time ago however, I’m unable to find them now. If they were available that’s certainly the way I would go.

thanks,

Here are some photos of the K line double portal which are cast resin.  I don't recall the measurements but they seem to be wider than the MTH.  I use both MTH and K line double portals on my layout.  As mentioned earlier in this thread, K line can be had on e bay.  I also see them often at train shows.  IMG_8376IMG_8378IMG_8380
