Looking for a good source of train tracks for micro scale? is z scale close enough? I bought some tracks that where resin years ago, but cant recall where I purchased them. they are great but the rails are brittle and several have broke off. I would like to make a small base with the tracks and add some flock and trees for flavor. Any thoughts on base material?

Irregular miniatures make 1:300 scale track, there is also a hornby planning pack of plastic tracks that are the right scale,

I think Z is ok as long as you don't have a train on it, it would look over scale.

I use z scale for my 6mm layouts. It's a little big, but no one seems to complain. It's a lot easier/cheaper than buying resin tracks and painting them.


I bought mine here. Ben

Both of these sites offer 6mm – 1/285 railway products, many of which are from the same molds with the difference being Legion is in Canada and I-94 is in Michigan.

I need straight only at this time, 6' worth it shows the first link is out of straight how often do they restock? Also how is the I-94 product? there was no pictures.

Z scale works pretty well, just don't put a train on it.

Really, when I go in it showsT006 long straight track in stock. If it is out of stock, I believe he casts it all himself so contact him at

The I94 products are very similar resin casts that do paint up nicely. I bought these at Little Wars from i94 a couple of years ago. They come in bags of six unpainted.

Hi Fullmetal,

These are really good, but as the product is OOP you have to look on e-bay etc for them. Quarter scale 00 track planner from Hornby in the UK.



williamb11 Apr 2016 2:03 p.m. PST offers train tracks in 1/300 and other scales

Probably the best item was Hornby's R619 set of 1/4 scale plastic track planning pieces as noted above. British OO scale is 1/76 so 4x76 would be 1/304

Have a look: Masters of Military offers tracks and trains on Shapeways, very good details but like all SW products not cheap:
