Re: New Shapes to come


I don't think you're going to find a specialized shape like rail much cheaper than nickel silver esp if you can salvage the rail from used track.

I consided myself as the average modeler. So I want to build and
detail a track gane center with some out buildings and with one
or two piles of different sizes of rail and have a section of
mian line with sections of rail laying on both sides, that would
look impressive.

Now if I do this and use nickle silver rail that could very easily
be in double diget dollars. I would think twice before doing that
when I could, for the same amount, add a piece of rolling stock or
structure. Now for half that amount, using Styrene, I could do that
detail project.

It's my guess that's the same thought that the other average
modelers would have, but then I might wrong.

Thanks for your reply

I don't understand the need for it - what's wrong with real rail?

Hi Ed, and All,

I would be interested in the code 83 and 55
in long lengths. This is a much needed item for
detailing many structures. It was often used for
making fences and hose racks, etc around shops.

I'm going to go to Evergreen and ask them if they would consider
marketing Styrene Rail in HO, O and N scale in codes 100,83 and 55
in packages of 6, in 24" or 36" in lenght.

So, to give them a feeling of what the modelers thing about
buying something like this, would you please let me know what
your thoughts are?

Thank you
