Micro Engineering code 83 non-weathered rail is recommended for use in all Fast Tracks assembly fixtures and hand laid track in general. The rail is very precisely made from nickel silver and can be easily soldered.

Each piece is 18" long.

Why We Recommend Micro Engineering Rail

Micro Engineering rail is precision rolled and maintains very tight base and head width tolerances (+/- .001"). These precise tolerances ensure that the rail is held precisely in gauge when a Fast Tracks assembly fixture is used to build a turnout.

Note - 18" rail is cut by us from 36" rail stock. If the stock count shows that we are out of cut rail, check the stock levels of 36" rail. If it is in stock, we can produce 18" pieces to fill your order. There is no need to wait until it shows in stock to place your order.

While I can understand the rationale behind the 18" length, I still believe one can get better usage out of 36" rail. When building a #6 HO scale turnout for example, you'd end up with far more "guardrail" lengths of rail using 18" rail than if you built out of a 36" length. If you're building a lot of turnouts, go buy the 36" rail.

Like any length of Micro Engineering rail, this is simply terrific to work with. Consistent in profile and always takes solder so nicely. I particularly like being able to order the 18" lengths. Certainly saves on shipping cost but also just a nice length to work with and easier to store here at home. Chris
