Track Materials Question
« on: August 19, 2018, 01:40:56 PM »
Can someone answer this question(s):  What is the preferred spike size that we use at the museum?  Who do we currently buy from?

We use the standard spike size, as it holds much better than the original baby spikes and because they are a standard size are cheaper to get.

Joe,.    I am assuming that we are using 5/8 x 6 in spikes.  Please PM me on an interesting prospect that might save use some decent bucks.
