Hello everyone, does anyone make code 100 bridge track? Thanks!
Micro Engineering makes Code 83 bridge track, that looks great, and with some special joiners that they also make, I think, the whole deal can be had for about $15.00
If you can't find CODE 100 bridge track, you could use CODE 83 and use the Atlas rail joiners that allow you to join CODE 100 to CODE 83.
I didn't find any from my usual sources, even Central Valley is made for smaller rail. What I ended up doing was taking C100 flex track and epoxying Campbell's bridge ties to the bottom. What I did was tape the flex to an 18" steel ruler. Then I broke off sections of the plastic ties, about 10 at a time, gluing the new ties in each section as I went, slightly closer than I would on the ballasted mainline ties. Once hardened, I'd move to the next section. This way kept the track in gauge and straight the whole time. Once finished, I white glued wood timbers down each side and epoxied a guard rail made from C70 track scraps I had on hand.
Walthers supposedly has code 83 bridge track. I couldn't find code 100 for the double track bridge that I bought from them. Ordered code 83 and have been waiting almost a year for it since it is on back order. I guess Micro Engineering is your best source.
