KATO 20-505 R249-45 Single Track Curved Viaduct
« on: August 19, 2014, 08:51:16 am »
Friends,

I have been searching the 'net for an image of the subject piece from the side!  Everywhere appears to be a shot straight down on to the track!

All I want to know is whether the sides are extended upwards in any way as would be the case if it were a real viaduct or do you have to purchase a separate section?

Regards, Peter.

The van above is standing on a matching straight piece, you can see how the sides extend upwards compared to the normal track under the loco.  This is how they come out of the pack without buying anything extra.

Actually, I've thought of a better picture, try this video just after the opening titles:

Just a quick note - the sides do reduce the area available for overhang, so some longer cars which might be fine on the non-viaduct curve could end up scraping the sides.

Very useful Steve :thumbsup:, I also want to be all concrete and it is frustrating that much of the Unitrack is wooden sleepered.

Simple answer is yes viaduct track comes complete with sides. However track can be remove from the fixture with a small effort.
I don't have any single track curves only double as per pics.
