Title: New Tomix tram track pieces
Post by: TylerB on November 15, 2016, 03:34:44 am
New Tomix cobbled/paved tram track and grass track coming soon... looks a lot better than the smooth featureless tram track they've made up to now (but still no pointwork unfortunately)

Many thinks for this information.
Do you know how you can connect this track to Kato Unitrack?

There is a Tomix- kato connector piece which may work

There's no simple way to connect the two, you can bodge something together but you'd be better off sticking with one system or the other I think

you can connect them with a short railway track style piece called kato conversion track or something like that

There is a conversion piece for connecting kato to tomix track part no "20-045 62mm Snap-Track Conversion Track" (S62J).

Just beware you'll need a short piece of normal Tomix track to connect the tram track to the Kato connector. Alternatively you could probably cut the Tomix joiner off the tram track, remove the Kato Unijoiner and connect the pieces directly using the fishplates only.

G'day All, when considering using Kato and Tomix track remebers that Kato double track centre to centre is 33mm and Tomix is 37mm.
