Hello Michael

Welcome to FreeRails!

I agree with Woodie. The only advantages to three rail is that wiring for certain track configurations (return loops primarily) is easier--but if you are going with on board batteries and R/C you don't have ANY wiring to the track--so why not have track that is prototypical looking?

I would avoid Proto 48, especially for an outdoor line. It involves buying, and changing out wheels to get the smaller profile--- and tighter tolerances for trackwork. In return, things look more prototypical close up--but unless you are going to view things laying with your nose in the grass, you won't notice the difference. My opinion, worth what you paid for it.


Fix it again, Mr Gates--it still works!"
