HORNBY DUBLO TRAINS

 

THREE-RAIL TRACK

There are two main types of Hornby Dublo three-rail track. The difference between them is in the design of the spring clips between all the pieces, which provide the electrical connection. The earlier pattern (we exclude pre-war track) has smaller rounded spring clips at each end of each piece of track. Later track uses slightly stronger, wider, contact spring clips which are more durable. This later type of track continued until the end of three rail for Hornby Dublo.

Both types of track are fully interchangeable, and can be mixed at will.

The three-rail track has a simple, easy-for-young-children-to-understand, geometry, and the track is quite capable of being assembled onto a carpeted floor, where it will operate reasonably reliably. In fact, I would go so far as to say that nobody did it better!

All our internet track stock is classified as "Excellent" unless otherwise stated.
