Nuremberg Toy Fair Surprise – New Prototypical RTR track

This week, German model train manufacturer Weinert Modellbau announced the release of its own line of ready to run track labeled “Mein Gleis” or “My Track” – an announcement that had the German model railroad scene abuzz. The code 75 track is available as 920 mm flex track and a variety of turnouts based on 1934 German DRG prototype drawings. It can be used with NEM and RP-25 wheels both in standard and 2.2 mm tire width. See the video below for a quick preview of a 49-190-1:6,6 turnout.

The series fits in the with the line of Peco track, which Weinert has been distributing for years and is likely manufactured by Peco.

For PROTO:87 modelers, the turnouts need to be modified but might work well – especially in fiddle yards. A first glance at the pictures provided on Weinert’s website reveal nicely detailed tie plates with screw imitations albeit with one compromise: the screw imitations on the inside were left off, probably to ensure the compatibility with NEM wheels.
