Aside from the metals used and the color of the roadbed, Bachmann's steel and nickel-silver tracks are identical.

If you're worried about galvanic corrosion, an electrolyte would also be required.

Assuming the two metals are kept dry you should have nothing to fear aside from oxidation, which is easily removed with regular maintenance.


On a side note:  Oxidation occurs more quickly on steel than nickel-silver, so the latter requires less frequent cleaning.
