I do not want to hijack this thread but would like to know more about the track you have selected and how you plan to add the third rail. Is that two rail that has been hand laid with a third rail in the future? I have been toying with the idea of modifying MTH Scale Trax tie spacing or using a two rail track and adding a third rail. Thanks
Paul was right, it's just plain 'ol Gargraves :-)
I am experimenting with using a wire and standoffs in place of a center rail. Something less-obtrusive looking. For fun, mostly, as the trains I am running on this are hardly paragons of scale accuracy. If anything comes of it, I'll post the results.
Worst-case scenario, the experiment fails and I buy myself some rail and spike it down to get back to 3-rail. If nothing else, I've learned that 2 rail is a lot easier to bend!
