The last time I posted to this thread was in February 2013 .. over two years ago. Finanlly goitn to re-start the project.
Discovered (Duh!) that I can order lengths of Code 125 track from Fast Tracks. They sell Micro Engineering Code 125 in 36″ lengths and to top it off is Nickel Silver. So.
The coke ovens are 40″ long. The cross-rails are spaced 1-1/2″ apart with each rail 3-7/8″ long. That means I can get 9 cross-rails from each 36″ long piece of rail. 40 / 1.5 = 26.6 cross-rails .. orrrr .. 3 ea 36″ rails.
I was happy .. until I saw that the minimum order is 66. Well. Shoot.
