The larger number 3 radius is designed to construct a circuit around the outside of a circuit at No.2 radius, with the track spacing set so that two left-hand or right-hand points will form a cross-over between the two circuits. Larger radius curves allow trains to run safely at higher speeds without derailment.
Peco track is manufactured in Great Britain using quality nickel-silver rail which offers good electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance. Setrack track is supplied with fishplates already fitted and is compatible with the track supplied with Hornby and Bachmann train sets.
Leading Japanese N gauge model train makers Kato are following on from the success of their Eurostar by producing the Hitachi Class 800 IEP train now in service UK high-speed lines.A superb model of the 5-car dual-mode IEP units operated by Great Western on routes from London Paddington to Worcester/Hereford, Gloucester/Cheltenham, Cardiff/Swansea, Bristol and Plymouth/Penzance.
Kadee metal knuckle coupler with NEM pocket mounting, as fitted to most current production European models, including Hornby and Bachmann.Pack of four No.18 couplers with medium length shank measuring 11/32in or 8.63mm.Measurement from shoulder 'stop' on shank which fits against the NEM pocket to the pulling face of the coupler.We normally advise the No.19 coupler as the most suitable for general use the No. 18 couplers can be used as an alternative on many models when running on broad curves eg. No.4 radius (22in) or greater.The No.18 offers a shorter, neater appearance for locomotives, especially those with sprung buffers which will allow a little extra clearance. Always double check the coupler installation provides sufficient slack on your sharpest radius curve to ensure trouble-free operations.

Long length version of the Bachmann NEM cranked couplers used on wagons with the NEM pockets mounted directly below the floor, placing them too high for normal coupling.The long length version is useful for wagons with recessed coupler pockets and for long wagons needing extra end clearance to negotiate curves without buffer-locking.
This model is painted in post war British Army bronze green and supplied with a model tank load.

A nice model of a 20-ton capacity wooden body coal wagon in the grey livery of The Gas Light & Coke Co. wagon number 763.These long wheelbase wagons had two drop doors fitted each side, plus bottom hatch doors. The larger wagon body offered a higher load capacity than short-wheelbase wagons (20 tons compared to 10/12 tons) with only a small increase in empty tare weight. 20-ton wagons were particularly useful for consumers of large quantities of coal like gas and electric power plants.
