Hello,
Haven't been on this site for about two years now. We moved from western Washington state to the east side of the state and I had to tear down my whole set and I'm just now getting it set back up.
I was looking to find the rail bed that Split Jaw used to have on their site but it looks like they are no longer in business. Does anyone happen to know if somebody else sells the rail bed?
Thank you,
Steven

Split Jaw is gone and most of their product is sold out. The road bed would add up pretty quick to do a layout. Many ideas out there at a lower cost. The ladder method with 2 PVC strips makes a quick easy job.

Hi Treeman,
That is how I did my last set up but where I live now the ground is so rocky I can't drive anything in the ground. I have been building trestles for any height above three inches but its the last few inches above ground that I thought the Splt Jaw Rail Bed might work.
Thank you,
Steven

Steam in the Garden magazine had an article some time back by Scott McDonald on how he did his elevated layout. He used pre-cast concrete deck footings which he left on the surface. He inserted PVC pipe into them, and then used toilet parts to attach to a deck for the track. Has a slip design to compensate for vertical movement.
Check the mag website for past articles, which are available for a fee

The Train Department stocks Split Jaw hardware all sizes. Look under the heading Track and Switches.
