Track from American Models
American Models Universal Track


New additions to our Universal Track System!

30° Crossings

30 deg crossingThis is an example of what 4 of our new 30° crossings would look like. All snap to 3" track centers when installed together.

These crossings feature continues electrical power through its own rail. Both lines are insulated from one another. Some older engines with partial electrical pickup may experience a small dead spot when running at slow speed. Sold seperately with rail joiners.

75° Crossings

75 deg crossingThis is an example of what 4 of our new 75° crossings would look like. All snap to 3" track centers when installed together.

We chose this angle instead of the 90° because no wheel axle will fall into the gap going over the frog area, resulting in quieter and longer lasting operation. Figure-8 track plans look smoother with these 75°'s.

Electric Uncoupler

electric uncouplerEasily installs onto existing American Models striaght track. This device requires a power interrupt switch of any kind, so use your AF switch or Atlas control box ($3.15ea) which can be gang connected for multiple uncouplers. Can be used with 3" track centers. Wires included.


Since 1993, the leading track system in S gauge railroading. Packaged in our train sets and sold separately. We, and out customers, believe this is the most realistic track system ever made in any scale. The reasons are as follows:

  1. Weathered .148 rail. On the real railroads the rail is rusted in various shades, even when new.
  2. Tie height, width, length and spacing between the ties are modeled from the real main lines.
  3. Skewing of the ties, which means the ties are not parallel with oine another. In fact, real track are sometimes 10° skewed from one another.
  4. Spike plates, spikes, wood graining and color are represented in a realistic fashion.
  5. Quiet, not like hollow rails or noisy, hollow plastic roadbed.
  6. Solid, non-corrosive brass rail and tough ABS sold plastic ties withstand drilling and soldering.
  7. This rail has twice the electrical conductivity of nickel silver. Easy to bend and work with.


Notes:

  • All of our rail is .1482 in height. Do not confuse with #155 (pound) rail which is about 20% smaller.
  • All curved track is 1/12 section of a circle.
  • Turnout curve is equal to a 1/2 section of 27" radius track.
  • Rail joiners are included with sectional track and turnouts.
  • Small flanged scale trains will need a small modification.
  • Instructions are included.
  • American Flyer type trains will need no modifications.
