At NGRC in Phoenix I met a modeler who had some plastic rail. He said this would be used to model a car load of rail (obviously not for running train on it).

Anyone know where to get this plastic rail? Thanks.

I saw that rail too. I thought it was nylon and was meant for track use. I've lost the business card I got...but ChilliCharlie got the business card too. Maybe he still can find it.

The guy you need to talk to is Bill Franks, he was the guy with the plastic track at the NGRC. I had his card someplace, but have mislaid it. He used to hang around over on the Aristo site. You may find an achived article of his over there?

Neal I found the address of Bill Frank, you can contact him at, [email protected]
or his phone number is 1-304-728-0479
The track did look god and worked out a lot cheaper than brass. It also married up with the most common rail size.
Mike Riley and I were together when we talked to Bill. I believe it has UV stabilizers in the "Mix".

Bill just came by here a couple of hours ago to pick up some stuff I had
for him, an I asked him about the plastic track, right now its in the outdoor
testing stage, he's had a bunch of it laying out on his deck since last fall,
so far so good... Its primarily intended for battery RC use, as well as display
track, etc... They R apparently working on a way to electrify it too !!!!! That
ought to be good...
