a question about Minitrix track
« on: May 05, 2012, 04:38:59 PM »
I have some bits a pieces that I have picked up here and there second hand. I find it a joy to use for an oval with some sidings, it is rigid and has a good heavy feel. It just about connects to peco but there is a definite difference in rail heights.

My question is, what is Minitrix flexitrack like to work with? Is it bendy but rigid, like peco 55 and Fleischmann, or loose and supple like peco 80?
running in is so you get used to the noise, oops, to bed the gears down properly

Been a long, long time since I used any but I seem to remember it being stiffer than Peco.
Could be wrong though as it was over a decade ago!
Personal motto: You don't have to be mad to be a modeller, but I find it helps!
