I am looking into scratch building an SP common standard mainline wooden tressel and was wondering who makes tie plates for 1:29 scale Main line. My guess I would use code 332 rail and who makes rail spikes for hand layed rail also?.

Thanks Tony Czuleger from Redondo Beach.

Hi,

for tie plates I´d look at LLagas Creek, Sunset Valley and/or Ozark. Suitable steel nails as well. For lighter rail, some people cut staples to shape.

For 1 : 29, Code 332 rail is very high. 215 or  250 looks much better. If covered with ballast, it is not sao evendent, but on exposed places like a bridges deck, it often looks rather toylike.
