Atlas code 55 turnouts,tech 4 mrc 280 manual,mth bnsf sd70ace o scale - Good Point

Designed with precision and sophisticated technology, Atlas' N scale Code 55 track has the same reliability and durability as our popular Code 80 track, but with some slight differences that make it more prototypical.
Code 55 track has nickel-silver rail, finer brown ties and a smaller, more realistic rail cross section than traditional N Scale Atlas track. Designed with precision and sophisticated technology, Atlas' N scale Code 55 track has the same reliability and durability as their popular Code 80 track, but with some slight differences that make it more prototypical. I recently started a room-size N-scale layout that will have about 130 feet of visible mainline track (and a lot more hidden).
I also will be using some Micro Engineering Code 55 flex because it is the only N-scale concrete tie flex with the correct North American tie spacing.
If you are running older equipment (with larger flanges) your selection will be limited a little.


Peco code 80 and code 55 - Great stuff, lots of track choices (curved turnouts, Stub turnouts, slip switches, and all kinds of stuff), solid and reliable. Now since Micro Engineering just came out with a DCC friendly version of their HO stuff a little while ago, N scale might be comming soon. Code 55 track is characterized by having finer brown ties and smaller rail than Atlas' traditional Code 80 track.
I have only used Atlas Code 80 on previous layouts but chose Atlas Code 55 this time around because it looked so good in everyone's photography. Problems - turnouts have a spring like the Peco ones so it has those same issues, can be hard to find, very expensive.
I just laid down some track over the weekend to test some track arrangements, and boy does that Atlas Code 55 look sweet.


It just doesn't look the greatest (tall rail, oversize ties and tie spacing and so forth). I've been told one solution is that you must remove the spring and make a new throwbar in order to use DCC with no issues.

    Model train layouts as a likelihood appear, we opted to screw the wooden.
