Single slips were often used on double track lines to incorporate a trailing crossover into the access for a siding, goods yard etc. The clever geometry of this range enables the modeller to easily create convenient, complex and aesthetically satisfying track formations using combinations of small, medium and large radius turnouts and crossings. Despite a low visible rail height of just 1.4mm, all brands of N Gauge model locomotives will run on this track.
The ingenious rail section of PECO 55 combines strength and durability with a highly realistic appearance and uses the same universal rail joiners as Code 80; the geometry of this range has been cleverly designed to make it easy to build convenient, complex and aesthetically pleasing formations.

PECO has always been a forward-looking family company with a long tradition of innovative thinking. The business started trading in 1946 and is now in its third generation.
From early days, PECO has concentrated its manufacturing skills on producing trackwork for the model railway enthusiast. Individual component parts was how it started, but this developed into HO/OO ready-made track with fibre sleepers. With plastics becoming more popular in the 1960s, PECO decided to introduce the famous Streamline range, which over the years has become one of the world’s leading brands for not just HO/OO but all scales from Z to G.
PECO currently produces no less than 20 track ranges, featuring both standard gauge and narrow gauge systems, plus a wide selection of complementary accessories and items to add scenic detail to your layout.
