Hornby and Bachmann track, compatible enough?

Rate this question

Blu Bianco


In the coming time, I will need more track to extend my (planned) layout, all of it thus far is going to be made up of Hornby track, which will be the majority of it.


In looking to extend, I noticed Bachmann's track is slightly cheaper, is this just a pricing thing or would there be any quality issues?


Or any other issues regarding mixing Hornby and Bachmann track? I'd presumed they are fairly standard but I would just like check first.


Thanks for your help!

The Bachmann seems to be more 'steel'. More rigid and seems to oxidize faster. Just based on a few pieces I got with a set.


Thanks BosKonay, thats been really helpful.


I may stick with the Hornby then, since its going to make up the majority of it anyway, makes more sense in a few ways.
