Tillig to Keuhn joints

I realize that this is a likely a stupid question, but what pointers does everyone have for the potential of connecting Tillig track to Kuehn track?

I don't really understand your question. But I make a try to answer.

I will use Kuehn track as siding or yard track. For a difference from heavy mainline rails to smaller branch lines rails. Therefore I must connect Kuehn track with Tillig track. I have ordered the Kuehn item 72722. This is a stepped joint. 10pcs per item.

Bingo.

That is what I was looking for, I did not know about the 72722, mainly because my German skills are still pretty poor.

If you have more than enough Tillig rail joiners, you can modify them. Cut a gap from above in the joiner. But leave the bottom intact. Then you can bend one side higher than the others. The Kuehn 72722 are similar. The feet of the rails from Tillig and Kuehn are nearly same wide.

To be more general, Kuehn track is code 70, Tillig is code 83.
A few North American manufacturers (e.g. Atlas) make transition joiners. May be cheaper to buy domestic, but not necessarily.

That works for me as well, at least if I had a surplus of Tillig joiners.
