Bullhead Track Type Nickel Silver Rail
Length 914mm (36in)
This OO scale bullhead track from Peco represents the common style of track once seen all over the UK (and in some parts of France too!). Even today, bullhead track can still be found on secondary routes and in sidings, so the time frame for this track is very wide. With sleeper dimensions and spacing closer to 4mm/OO scale (despite the track gauge still being 16.5mm), visually this track does look impressive once ballasted and weathered. It was always going to be a compromise, but we think that the result is pleasing to the eye. Certainly, the attention to detail of the rail chair fixings should be noted, a visual necessity for replicating true bullhead track.
Correct track gauge for most commercially available rolling stock - no risk of derailment on curves.
Sleeper depth matches existing Peco track, so fully compatible with other 16.5mm gauge (OO/HO) track in the Peco range.
Rail chairs feature realistic detail, with superb wood grain effect on sleepers.
Accurate bullhead rail profile.
Nickel sliver rail - the best material for electrical conductivity.
Special rail joiners for this track are available as SL-114.
If connecting to standard Code 75 Rail, use SL-110 Joiners.
