Micro Engineering code 100 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. The shorter length of this rail allows it to be shipped in a standard size box. If you do not need standard 36" rail lengths for your project, we recommend purchasing 18" rail to save on shipping fees.

Why We Recommend Micro Engineering Rail

Micro Engineering rail is precision drawn 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.

Fast Tracks does not offer weathered rail, as it is not possible to solder this rail without removing the weathering treatment.

Note - we cut 18" rail 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 will produce 18" pieces to fill your order. There is no need to wait until it shows in stock to place your order.

36" Rail is also available.

    This is the best code 100 rail I've used for building turnouts. Prototypical cross section and consistent dimensions and flatness make it easy to work with and gives excellent final results.

    Excellent product. Used it many times before and just received my new supply for an expansion of my layout.

    Excellent quality delivered quickly. Very well itemized and packaged. I have ordered from Fast Tracks on many occasions and my experiences were all extremely positive. Their tools and fixtures used for hand laying track are of very high quality. Pleasure to deal with, overall highly recommended.

    Typical high quality Micro Engineering product held to close tolerance needed when building Fast Tracks products. I keep plenty on hand for a unexpected, quick built project with my Fast Tracks products.

    My order for the code 100 rail was accidentally misshipped and I received code 70 instead. After alerting customer service to the problem, the correct product was immediately reshipped and arrived in good order. I was well satisfied.
