A buck a piece? Looks more like $8.00 a piece. I think it's mislabeled. (?)

Price and quantity not withstanding; It is also 12mm gauge... but NOT TT-scale;
The ties are sized and spaced for HO (1:87.1)...

I've dug some of my track bits to highlight some of the differences in 12mm gauge track

SDC11603.JPG
From top to bottom - Shinohara - Peco HOm - Kuehn - Tillig


SDC11605.JPG
Peco verses Tillig


SDC11612.JPG
Peco HOm verses Peco HO code 75


SDC11610.JPG
A little surprising - Shinohara 12mm verses Shinohara dual gauge


From memory Shinohara is known as Lambert ( ? ) in the US

The Tillig EW-2 is virtually identical in size to the Peco point. I was just trying to show the differences in sleeper sizes and spacings. As Richard said the Peco point is basically HO scale. From memory I think they tried to model it off the Swiss HOm track.

Yes, that flextrack was mislabeled and Trainz corrected it.

Out of curiosity, who makes 12 mm track - both TT and HO m ?

I am looking for crossings - 30 degrees and 45 degrees - and would not have a problem trimming and sliding HO
ties to make it look TT.

...another source is Kuehn:

...but no crossings yet.

It also might be possible to use more readily available (in NA) HOn3 crossings... and insert 1.5mm in the middle.
Shinohara has 30, 45, 60 and 90-degree in HOn3...
