Anyone seen these yet? They claim the track is new, does anyone know if it's
compatible with the original sets? I had kind of a neat display plannes, I
needed 1 more left and 1 right turnout to get enough tracks to display all
of the rail related items together in a relatively small area. Just want to
know if the track will work with the old track.

When the kits came out I gauged the track and found that DML "fudged"
it a bit -- it's actually N Gauge (1/160) track so you can use them
with any standard N Gauge tracks from a model railroad. (1.435 meters
in 1/144 scale = 10 mm, 1.435 meters in 1/160 = 9 mm.)
That depends on which country you live in. Different countries use different
scales on the same 9mm gauge track. The United Kingdom for instance is 1/148
which is as near dammit to 1/144 whilst Japan is 150/1.
Actually I was more interested in if the "new tooling" tracks could be
connected with the "old tooling" tracks. I have 4 of the turnouts plus
straight and curved track and I found by fiddling around with them I could
make a 4 track ladder style yard with enough room to park most or all of the
rail items, Karl on rail transport, the 2 different K5s and the armoured
train, panzer in a rail car and the freight wagons. It would make a for a
neat compact display.
I need 2 more of the turnouts to make it, which is wht I need to know if the
nre ones will connect to the old ones.
Or as cookie said just use N-gauge track, I guess manual switches wouldn't
be so bad (read as expensive) for such a display.
