Hi folks,

Does anyone happen to know which company would have made this segment of tubular track? I think I got it over a decade ago as part of an auction win, and I'm now finding myself wanting more, if I can find them (I'm also open to alternative suggestions for short segments like this). 

Any guesses as to the make?

Thanks so much,

Rafi

I've never seen tubular track with roadbed like that.

In general, tubular track is easy to cut to any size needed (I use a Dremel tool). I try to avoid small filler sections. Let's say that a full length section is 10" long, and I need to fill a 13" space. Instead of a full section and a 3" piece, I'd cut one of the longer length tracks available (usually equivalent to 3 sections) to 13".

 

 

John,

Thanks for the quick reply! Yes, my Dremel is waiting in the wings. Thanks also for the advice on avoid smaller filler sections, which is well-understood. This is a scenario where the fill section is a short straight part of an S-curve, so two long sections won't cut it, (pun intended) here, unfortunately.

Thanks again!

Great work, guys! Wow--what an obscure piece of track, and you guys pinpointed it in less than an hour. Thanks so much! It sounds like the piece I have is going to be all I'll find if TRW hasn't been able to find much more over the past 5 years. It might be time for the Dremel to come out to make some siblings out of standard tubular. 

Thanks so much, guys!
