Possibly, but it's not something we've got planned at the moment.  At this scale the track would be very thin and likely to break, so we'd really need to supply it on some type of base which might not be ideal.  We are working on some resin tracks though, which would be stronger and easier to use.

OK, sounds just right as it is for WW1 and also FPW era, could also stretch to ACW (but it would have to be a big tunnel to get across to Gettysburg!!)

Tracks on a base would in many ways be preferable anyway, as real track needs bedding, ballast, etc. I'm using N Gauge track with none & it just doesn't look right...

Agreed - ballast and sundry bits of vegetation add to the look. Incidentally, many railways in the South during the ACW were narrow gauge.

They've all been moulded but with one thing or another we've not got them sorted and released.  I'll get on to this after Salute and we can get them onto the website.

Sounds promising. I have a fair bit of 6mm track, but the 10mm seems to be as rare as henís teeth (and Iím working on Villers-Brettoneux in 10mm, which features rail track and a train. Fortunately been able to pick up engines and rolling stock fro eBay).
