Code 30 rail in coil - how to straighten it up

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have joined recently the association, and ordered some useful staff for my hand-built tracks.

I have also got some code 30 rail, that arrived in coil.

My question: how I can straighten up the rail? are there eventually any links to some guides?

 

First time I see rail in this way :)

 

Thanks a lot for your help,

Welcome to the 2mm Scale Association! I suggest you read through messages #1852-1859 on this thread:

But as a newcomer to 2mm finescale modelling, you might find it easier to work with the slightly larger (and less twisty) Code 40 striprail instead.

 

Hope that helps.

Thanks Phil,

I will check these messages.

I missed to say I have ordered and received also the Code 40 striprail, together with many pre-cutted sleepers...

 

Thanks again!
