G Scale track

We carry two major types of G Scale TracK: LGB and Piko. They are very similar in look -both have brown ties with Brass rails.
They can be used together. Piko track is made in Germany and LGB track is made in Hungary.

They are compatible with most G Scale track brands including Aristo Craft and USA Trains.
