MTH 40-1008 RealTrax Operating Track Section
Because most toy train empires begin on a carpet or floor, RealTrax is designed to hold up to the rigors of childhood play. Strong snap-together connections make it easy to assemble or change a layout in minutes. And the built-in roadbed helps keep dirt on the floor away from the wheels and gears of your trains.
With its realistic crossties and ballasted roadbed, RealTrax looks like the mainline track used by heavy freights and high-speed passenger trains. Unlike older O gauge track with a round cross section, RealTrax uses flat-top "T"-rail like a real railroad.
Nickel silver rail ensures that RealTrax will never rust. Spring-loaded phosphor bronze contacts provide superior electrical connections between track sections. The contacts are spring loaded to maintain a solid connection over time and are highly resistant to corrosion of any kind. Similar materials are used in many electrical connections around your home, such as lamps, battery-operated appliances, and electrical outlets.
