I'd like to have just an 1/8" long piece of code 250 plastic rail where I'm using split-jaw insulators (which don't do a good job at keeping gaps IMO).

Also a small bit of plastic between metal rail would removing having a gap that could potentially cause a derail and to prevent metal wheels from bridging the insulating gap when they pass over.

I've looked around a bit but can only find Train-li's code 332 plastic rail. Anyone know where I might be able to get some code 250, and just one length? I have 20 insulated rails so in all I need less than 10" of plastic rail. A plus would be if it matches SVRR's rail of a a 6mm rail foot width so it stays held nicely by the clamps.

I am not aware of any offerings for plastic code 250 rail. You may be able to use a PlaStruct "I" beam by cutting it to fit. It won't be exact, but should not be noticable from the ten foot viewing distance. Spray your finished pieces with a UV inhibitor prior to installing them.
