Mamod do cast 32mm gauge track.
I'm 99.9% sure they _don't_ do 45mm gauge.
They do (sometimes) offer their 0-4-0 tank with longer axles and
cylinder spacers to fit 45mm gauge, but no track to suit.
Thanks guys, but the track I have latches together with two opposite
hooks on the end tie, so its a specific track, unlike others that slip
together, by the actual male-female rail coupling.
I've checked out Mamod's website, and they offer O gauge, _not_ G gauge.
That's 32mm gauge, not 45mm gauge. Regardless, it's non-standard. It
seems rather expensive to me, at 33.80GBP for eight pieces. AFAIK, there
are no North American sources.
I suppose there might be a problem running live steam engines on
standard O gauge track (plastic ties, nickel silver rail), but if there
isn't, I would personally bite the bullet and convert to another brand
of O gauge track. It's about half the price. Atlas track:
But if using standard O gauge track is a hazard, then I'm afraid you are
stuck with importing Mamod's track from the UK.
I haven't heard of any problems with Uk modellers using Peco track (they
track with the correct sleepers for SM-32, although the range is more
than thier 0-Gauge track). UV stability might be a problem with some makes
