Peco track

Postby crazypotter » Tue May 28, 2019 7:54 pm

Hi all. I am about to embark on a bit of extension to my layout. At the moment all the track is the Hornby nickel/silver. I have been offered a quantity of Peco settrack at a good price. Would this go together ok and are there any pitfalls to look out for. This is 00 gauge. Many thanks.

There's very little difference between Peco settrack and Hornby track, you can safely mix them.

Peco settrack is fully compatable witn Hornby track as both of them are code 100 and actually use geometry so close to each other that only their diamond crossings are noticeably different. Hornby use left hand or right hand while Peco use a single unhanded diamond crossing instead.
