Realtrax is simply the easiest
O Gauge track system ever manufactured. Featuring durable metal rails
strong enough to stand on and a built-in roadbed for a realistic
appearance ensures that a RealTrax layout will last for years while
sporting a realistic appearance not found in other O Gauge track systems.
RealTrax incorporates built-in track bed joiners and long-lasting sprung-
metal electrical connectors that make assembling RealTrax literally a
snap. Because the roadbed is solid, RealTrax is perfect for temporary
carpet based layouts. The built-in roadbed prevents any dirt from
staining your carpet and it comes apart so easily that your temporary
layout can be disassembled in minutes.
While the RealTrax system employs durable nickel-silver rails that won't
rust or oxidize in an outdoor environment, the plastic roadbed and rail
ties are constructed of ABS plastic that can be compromised outdoors.
Essentially, ABS plastic is not designed to withstand extreme temperature
swings and can distort (in high heat) or crack in extreme cold. In addition,
the plastic will tend to fade in color since it has not been treated with
UV resistant paint. As a result, we do not recommend that RealTrax be used outdoors.
RealTrax comes in a variety of different curve and straight sections
and sizes. Each curve size can be used to create a circle measuring
in width from 31" to 82". The image below helps illustrate the different
