Model Tech Rail alignment system
Author: dmaffei

This various scale rail alignment system would be good for lift out sections of a layout. Wondering if anyone here on TO has used these. They were developed by a UK company.

Installed our first 2 pair last weekend on a lift-up section. They work great! Keep in mind they only line tracks horizontally.

Interesting. I imagine at least one side could not be glued or tacked down.( if your not using modules) How much expansion and contraction do they allow for?

Go to the web site it shows them used on a lift out section. Do see a problem it works until the piece that hangs out without support gets broken using the lift out. Seems they are for some unknown reason just to align two pieces of track as its laid also.

Maybe they can make some in various radi? Despite what some may think, you can have lift-up gate, etc., on a curve. A product like this would help.I suppose since it's a Europeon product the curve radius might be in centimeters, but we can work around that.
