Train Set Catalogue Information

1991 The Red Star Courier can use either route through the passing loop at one end of the layout. When changing from one alternative to the other be sure to switch over both points. The elevated track supports clip to track sleepers, the recommended gradient being achieved with the supports at 24 sleepers apart.
1992 The Parcels liveried locomotive picks up current from the running rails in the conventional way. The track layout features a long passing loop which provides an alternative route for the train when both points are changed. Inclined track supports clip to the track sections with a clothes-peg action.
1993 The track layout supplied has two special features to add interest. The points can be canged to divert the train round an alternative route and the inclined track supports, clipped simply onto track sections, require the driver to control his speed with care.
