Track items can now be ordered if pricing is shown.
Both TRACK systems are proven track systems that are both a superior product whether the VERSION #1 (made by LIONEL and recently found in an RMT dealer's warehouse-track is absolutely brand new!)is standard tubular 3-rail sectional track or the VERSION #2 , made by RMT, track with a blackened 'shadow' center rail. Both styles match up at same height.
VERSION #1 uses traditional-style tubular steel rails with insulated metal ties and steel end connecting pins.
VERSION #2 uses prototypically proportioned plastic ties, a blackened 'shadow' center tubular steel rail and outer steel tubular rails with alternate snap mating clip (removeable and will connect to traditional track sections with LIONEL65501 metal pin pack).
Both track styles are interchangeable and allows the toy train operator to create new track designs and expand an existing train layout.
All the components needed for a complete 3-rail toy train railroad are now available from RMT.
Larger diameter curve track will be added in the future.
