I have been seeing their advertisement in Garden Railways over the past couple issues for Accucrafts Code 332 flex. Anyone know of any more information on this track? I had been thinking I needed to convert but seeing their new track, and the MSRP (seeing how dealers usually sell them much less than that) made me happy.
The ad says delivery for Spring 2008 which would be right around the time I start working outside on track again.
I had a little garden layout using the narrow gauge code 250 flex for almost 3 years. When I sold the house I took the track with me, now time for a new layout. Not sure if I want to reuse it, now the
ties are chalky and brittle like RickV said. If i try to rebend the track the rails pop out because the tie plates and spikes crack off with ease. You have to do it very carefully. Really stinks because
the brass is perfect. The code 332 euro tie plate and detail is just thicker by design than the narrow so I think it will last much longer.
Now if that old layout was still there untouched, I think it would have still been fine as long as you didn't step on it or mess with it. Just didn't like the scorching Florida sun ha ha.
Looking at SSV or Accucraft code 332 euro now, or maybe add to the narrow code 250 as I still have 90ft of it. So many options.
