Pecos' Streamline range with nickel-silver rail has a well earned reputation for quality and durability, even outdoors.
Slip turnouts combine a diamond crossing with a turnout, allowing a train to pass onto either of the diverging tracks.These points were usually used in locations where many tracks converged and can prove useful on model railway layouts to reduce the length occupied by junctions.Code 124 bullhead rail. Length 584mm (23in). Crossing angle 8 degrees. Polarity changeover switching is required to correctly energise the crossings for the route set.Templates for Peco points are available from the Peco website.
Curve radiiOutside 3098mm / 122in / 10ft 2in.Inside 1727mm / 68in / 5ft 8in.
Frog angle 8 degrees. Length 516mm / 20.31in.Templates for Peco points are available from the Peco website.
Catch turnouts are used in the 'real railway' to prevent collisions by derailing any vehicle which moves towards a route not set for it to pass before it obstructs another track and to derail trains running away in the wrong direction on gradients.These aren't major problems for model railways, but this model of the catch turnout allows prototype track layouts to be recreated.Code 124 bullhead rail. Length 210mm (8.25in).Templates for Peco points are available from the Peco website.
