Very good looking injection molded track. It looks like the rails slip through the tie plates - very efficient. I am glad they did not try to mold ballast since there are so many good products out there, even those scaled to 1/35 (Armor35).

Quoted Text

The only low I can come up with is that these are listed as European gauge track, I know that during WW2 and up to the 1980’s there was no single track gauge across Europe.

Well, the only exceptions to the European standard gauge of 1435 mm were and are Russia/Soviet Union, Finland, Spain and Portugal, so you can use this track set for almost anything inbetween.

There are a number of narrow gauge lines, but except for the Balkans and parts of Switzerland, these never played any significant role.
