Title: EZ track
Post by: piggy back on October 08, 2017, 12:11:16 AM
What is the difference between the nickel sliver EZ track and the standard EZ track? Is it just the color or is nickel silver better quality? Will nickel silver work with non nickel sliver EZ track?  Thank you I am a newbie here! :)

Nickel-Silver has better conductivity than Steel after oxidation. You can use them together but I suggest you use Nickel-Silver as the Steel needs to be cleaned more frequently and is not as conductive after oxidation.

You will also find a larger variety of Nickle Silver EZ track than you will the steel track. Steel track is good for a cheap train set... just not ideal for the long run.
