Any word when these will come out?  Need some brick tracks, and some in O-27 and 31.  Some regular trains DO run in streets, like San Jose CA and the South shore RR>

JP of Acton MA USA writes,

the street tracks are primarily for running small motorised hi-rail vehicles, handcars,  and trolleys, as the tight 16 or 21 inch curves would not accomodate large locos. You could possibly get away with running the plymouth diesel switchers, and porter steam swtichers though, as those locos only have 4 small wheels and will easily pass through the tight curves. The only "brick track" I know of are similar street tracks with brick texture roadbed made by ETS, a european train company. Those tracks however are only available in 2 rail. To my knowledge, If WBB does start producing the former K-Line Super Streets tracks, I would bet that there would only be the 16 and 21 inch curves. KBL did produce special adapter tracks to transition to and from tubular and street tracks, so any large locos will run fine over any straight street track sections, but would need to transition to tubular to negotiate curves.

Who ever takes over and sells Super Streets should make some kind of switch tracks, left and right switches, even if just side by side or for side line use.
