Seeing the excellent Keuhn track that Rob D. sent along validated my decision NOT to use TT gauge track greater than Code 70... In fact, where I can, it will be Code 55 in yards, with Code 40 on some industrial sidings.

Rob, I know you mentioned the new curved switches that Kuehn is coming out with, any idea of when they will be available?

They will also do a longer switch but I'm not sure of the dimensions.

The Keuhn looks better to me in those photos, mainly due to the smaller "spike heads" holding the rails. The big question though-is it readily available in the US for anyone who wants to use it? Just making good stuff doesn't mean much if they don't make enough of it or if they make it hard to buy or price it too high? .....DaveB

Not yet unfortunately. Perhaps ETH or TT-West will one of these days?

"Perhaps ETH or TT-West will one of these days?"

We'd probably need to know their production capacity and cost to know if they can realistically service the US market? Even Atlas had problems getting N and HO scale track made for a couple of years. I'm not sure why they go overseas when Micro Engineering makes their track here with no problems at about the same selling price? It seems like something as basic as track would not be that hard to find but it often is, the demand always seems to be greater than the supply .....DaveB
