Not for ho scale, that I have heard of Ron. Long before Marklin acquired Trix, they had their Express track system which was D.C. current 3 rail.

Thanks. The stud system sure beats the solid 3rd rail. I use M track and the studs are barely visible. I rejected Marklin many years ago because of the solid 3rd rail and modeled in 2 rail DC. It was too similar to Lionel which I consider a toy, but since Marklin developed stud rail, I decided to go with Marklin for my new layout.

Grief, how long ago was that decision? Stud contact track came out before i started primary school, and I'm now past the 'three score and ten' and well retired.

That was around 1946. My friend had a Marklin train set with solid center rail. I remember my 2 rail HO trains wouldn't track on the Marklin track without derailing. I'm an old 86 yo geezer.
