Track fixing pins are suitable for all gauges.

Please take care to select the correct gauge when ordering track underlay rolls.

For OO and N Gauge

Recommended for N Gauge Track

Blackened mild steel pins, 14mm (9/16") long. For fixing most Streamline track gauges�to wood fibre board (Sundeala) or similar baseboard surfaces.

Note that these are fine pins, not nails and cannot be driven with a hammer. We recommend drilling through sleepers with a 0.5 or 0.7mm drill. When using plywood or chipboard continuing drilling into the board to get the pin started. The pin can normally be driven home with a small hammer.

For OO/HO Gauge

A 5-metre roll of foam ballast underlay for use with Peco Setrack and Streamline track systems.

To fit points cut the ballast roll down the centre and fit each side around the outer tracks of the point until the tracks part sufficiently to allow full-width ballast underlay to be used. Cut off square to meet and join the full width underlay. Use spare half-width underlay lengths trimmed along the outer edges to fit and fill the gap between the tracks.

Flexible tracks are great for recreating the flowing curves of the real railway and for making the curve radii you need to create your layout. Keeping the curves smooth and held in place while you fix the track can be challenging.
This flexible track holding tool provides you with the extra hands needed to hold the track in position while you fix it with pins, or wait for glue to set. You can even hold the track in you hands with the tool preventing it from loosing its curves.
