Hi, Engandy.

I'm guessing you're looking at an HO scale or N scale piece of E-Z Track.

It's possibly a die number (not referenced in the consumer catalog) for molding the E-Z Track plastic track bed.

Tell us more about the track.

HO or N ?

Is the track bed black or gray ?

Straight or curved?

If straight, how long ?

How many ties ?

If curved, do you have enough of them to form a complete circle?

How many to form a complete circle ?

How big is the circle ? Measure outside edge of track bed to inside edge of track bed on opposite side of circle.

Thanks.

Joe Satnik

Edit: Changed 'roadbed' to 'track bed'.

If your loco is too heavy to lift, you'd better be able to ride in, on or behind it.

Could be wrong, of course, but believe those numbers are manufacturing lot numbers, like where and when kinda stuff.  I have several pieces of 18"R N/S EZ Track but they have a different series of numbers, similar to the ones you are referring to, but the numbers are not identical.

In N scale, the number you posted would be the part number.
Other numbers include the degrees curvature, the radius, and the patent number(s).
I donít see any date code or machine number, but I have very little EZ track to look at.
The example I gave was for a 19r 15į NS N Scale curve which has 3 patent numbers.

Not sure how safe it is to assume that HO track would be the same.
YMMV
