All such bumps should be eliminated or the risk of derailments and unnecessary wheel wear is always present. Quote from: Roy L SIf Dr Al is online he may be able to provide a more comprehensive answer.


Things seem to have changed a little since that video, while there is certainly a discrepancy between the rail height it is nowhere near as pronounced as that clip shows. Contact the seller- opens in a new window or tab and request a shipping method to your location.

I have a reasonable stock of code 80 flexi track, however I have been tinking that if im ever going to use code 55, then now is the time to decide! They are compatible although the code 55 rail height is actually nearer code 83 with 55 thou showing above the plastic sleeper base. The ties are prototypically closer together and the overall appearance of the track is much more as you will see in the US.
Worth looking here at the video illustrating quite the bump you get when joing Peco code 55 (called Super N in the video, as it was in its early 1980s days, prior to the code 55 turnout range becoming available) to code 80. When measured the difference is probably 2 or 3 thou between the rail height of a code 80 medium radius and a code 55 medium radius turnout, the clip looks closer to 10 thou if not more. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. I will be using code 80 in the fiddle yard and in hidden areas and potentially code 55 in the front. I run 1970's Minitrix and some ancient Farish pizza cutter trains on Peco code 55 with no issues what so ever.
Both are designed to connect together with standard peco fishplates and the smidge of 3 thou difference is easily overcome with the wipe of a file for absolute smooth running (although it's not necessary and trains will run across without problem). Is code 55 any easier to work with?I think it is generally accepted that getting fishplates onto the rails regardless of code can a pain (literally), with the resultant Fishplate Finger for the next couple of days Having used code 80 before and now currently using code 55, I have never had the rails leave the webbing on either I prefer code 55 as the rails are part sunken into the sleepers, it looks better, and I can get small points in code 55 whereas only medium in code 80.
Obviously I know what code 80 looks like whn its laid, but im looking for a comparison of the 80 Vs 55 profiles.


As it is a US branch you may be considering Atlas code 55, and I have to say I probably find this to be my favourite track in N for appearance alone, the downside is that it is genuine code 55 rail meaning that older models will need suitably fine wheelsets fitting, or flanges grinding down and the back to backs suitably adjusted.Personally I much prefer to use Peco code 55 over Peco code 80.
A little packing is also required for an inch or two under the code 55 track but that is hidden with ballasting (if on the scenic area).
I know its nitpicky, but it does make a huge difference to the overall look of a layout when you are fussy with the track. I deliberately tried all these combinations with a length of code 55 (new) and a variety of turnouts and grades of code 80 when I first started in N in 1997.
Our business hours are from 10 AM - 5 PM Monday through Friday (closed Saturday and Sunday). I will be modeling a US Branch line so I think the lighter rail would be more appropriate, the question is, will it be notices?
Code 80 points have no standard geometry where the (Peco) code 55 frogs are all set at 10 degrees which means that everything works smoothly with everything else in the range. There was always a bump to varying degrees, but essentially consistent with the video, and since I was starting completely from scratch, at that time I felt it better just to buy all code 55 track for my layout.
That, coupled with the significantly larger range of pointwork available, the far more robust feel to the code 55 points and their ability to still support running older models makes it a pretty academic decision to use it in preference to code 80. Bumps, kinks, and suchlike are fatal for poor running - maybe I'm a perfectionist, but I feel removing them at the start is the surest way to give reliable running in the long run. All that's required is frog switching which can be done with no modification to the turnout itself.
