Layout Construction – Third Rail

The Gatport Airwick diorama is based on the real location of a similar name in West Sussex. The actual location features conductor rail or third rail which is a direct current supply. This is being replicated on the diorama, by using Peco code IL-120 Conductor Rail Chairs and code 60 rail as shown in the picture below.

This picture is a good one to show the difference between track not fitted with conductor rail (yet), for example the far left hand side, with track that has been fitted with conductor rails in the foreground.
