Kuehn and Tri-Ang?

This may be a stupid question, but will Kuehn track accommodate Tri-Ang wheels?

Thanks, we are trying to figure out if we can safely use Kuehn with the lower track profile, or if we need to stick with Tillig.

Quite frankly, I like the availability of Kuehn, as well as the fact that we can use the Fast-Tracks turnouts with it if we wanted to.

I've put a short video on Youtube with some Tri-ang on the Kuehn set track from their starter pack.

should be here https://youtu.be/pL2QY1_KzDA

Not a great success. For a show, I'd just do a loop without the turnouts, otherwise you'll be watching it all day for derailments. Watch what happens after I set the turnouts to the inner loop.

Thanks for the video.

Do you have any problems with Lok-N-Roll or MTB equipment on the turnouts?

No problems with any other brands on equipment. I'll try and do another video before " the boss " wants the table cleared off.

Once again, thanks for the video. Not only are we looking to fit track to the 3' x 4' layouts, but we are about to start on our 10' x 14' 2" TT scale layout in a few weeks/months, and for that we will need track, and lots of it.
