Proper bullhead rail with detailed 3 bolt chairs on correctly spaced sleepering
What's not to rave about?
Rail height and section is compatible with existing Code 75 flexitrack.
Points are under development.

The rail is correct bullhead profile and made of the usual nickel silver. It is code 75 (so 0.075" tall) and connects directly to the existing Peco code 75 flat-bottom rail with standard code 70/75/83 rail joiners. A more compact and detailed rail joiner is under development specifically for the bullhead rail. The head of the rail is the same width as that of flat-bottom, so there is no mismatch between the two when connected.
The sleeper base holds the rail at the same height as the existing code 75 track, so there is no need for any packing when connecting the two. This has also resulted in the sleepers being near-scale thickness, and thereby easy to spread loose ballast around without covering the sleeper top surfaces. The sleepers themselves are moulded in the usual dark grey-brown flexible plastic with good representation of wood graining on the top surface.
The chairs are the three-bolt type, typical of those used on the LMS, LNER and BR. Each inner jaw is reduced in height to allow clearance for deeper wheel flanges, but still holds the rail firmly. The maximum flange depth is 1.15mm, which, being more generous than the NMRA’s RP-25 standard (to which modern loco and rolling stock wheels are made) ensures compatability. They are finely detailed with crisply detailed screw heads and representations of the wooden keys holding the rail in. Usual practice is for the keys to be inserted from one side or the other depending on the normal direction of travel, so that ‘rail creep’ from the passage of trains is kept to a minimum. On bidirectional lines and sidings the keys are inserted from both sides for the same reason, and it is this arrangement that is modelled. As always, a lick of paint once laid will benefit the appearance of the track, and drybrushing with lighter shades will nicely pick out the extensive detail.
