Title: track

Will the stainless steel track that came with my bachmann set work outdoors?

Bachmann's LS track is pressed steel, not stainless steel. The rail rusts easily, preventing the flow of electricity to the engine, and will completely rust through in short order. The plastic ties are not UV resistant and also disintegrate in the sun.

Bachmann only recommends their track for indoor use and experience has shown it to have a short life in the great outdoors.

Happy RRing,
