I've been working on the basement lately so I can build the layout. It's an open room 30x50. Does anyone know of a track company that will make custom track? I contacted ross and they can't make the outside third rail track. I was thinking of going with Gargraves. I have a few sections of track that Gargraves made that every fifth tie is longer. I'd rather pay extra to buy the track pre made so the track will work take less time. If I can get the track made, I can build the layout with track in a few days. If I have to make that outside rail myself, it will slow the tracking down.
If Ross wont do it I doubt youll find one that will. Atlas 2 Rail track is the one you should use
I don't anyone ever made outside 3rd track. If you can get more of the gargraves with the extended tie, that would be great. From the photos I have seen, guys would screw flat head brass screws into the extended tie or the benchwork, and then solder a brass HO rail to the to top of the screw. NS ho rail would work better probably.
Since it is a very old technology, it is going to be hard to find.
GG for extended ties.
