Layout Construction – Track

The layouts track is fixed on a cork  sheet to absorb noise and vibration. The track is made by Peco from the Streamline code 100 range with product code SL-102 and the three points are medium radius electro-frog fitted, also by Peco with product codes SL-E95 and SL-E96.

Some of the sleepers have holes drilled in them ready to fit the third rail. The third rail, also called the conductor rail, sits on conductor rail chairs manufactured by Peco, product code IL-120. The holes are drilled into every forth or fifth sleeper and the conductor rail chairs pushed into the holes to secure them in place.

The conductor rails are being placed furthest from the platform edges on the model, just like the real thing.
