Atlas O
This US based firm may be of interest to the 16mm fraternity as a source of sectionalised 32mm track. The track is intended for three rail electric running and is of extremely high quality. Sleepers are made of a UV resistant wood-grained engineering plastic and are sturdy and certified for outdoor use. The rail is heavy section nickel silver, and the centre rail is blackened  (tho' it may not be too difficult to remove) The curved sections are 12 to circle, and come in several different radiuses.  There are points, also with at least two different frog angles, crossings and straight track of different lengths.

Probably the most comprehensive supplier of models and materials for the 16mm Narrow Gauge modeller. As they themselves say: "All you require to recreate in your garden, the nostalgia and charm of steam railways".
