What about this third party C to flex transition piece then?

I suspect since those are constructed using Märklin c track there isn’t a claim they can make. I don’t think you can claim inconvenient if someone uses your part to build something greater, just if they create your part directly.

Yes you are right Minok, I don't need those - thank you for catching that.

What do you mean by "permanently shown" please?

Sorry I meant permanently "thrown" not shown

Sorry, I do not understand. What is wrong about having a circle instead of a figure 8?


Nothing, I just could not figure out if I needed a figure 8 or could make do with a circle. I guess I can

The Norfolk and Western railway (and probably Pennsylvania too) had many double track routes that occasionally widened to three tracks to allow faster trains to overtake slower trains.
Though in most cases it was simply both tracks merged into (and out of) the third middle track.

Hello,

My understanding is that all Pensy mainlines were three track. So it is quite reasonable to expect one and two track branch lines merging into three. BTW, I've been driving a lot over the last year in eastern and central PA (work). I've stumbled across quite a few old PA RR lines that support this premise.
