Exclusive to AFX you have even more ways to build the track layouts you want. With the 9" straight track you can build track layouts that aren't possible with other brands.
NOTE! These are new retooled track pieces the same as the originals. Difference in price is due to:
The track surface is more uniform and shows no blemishes
The connectors are solid and won't come apart easily
The rail height is much more consistent
Mold and Certification costs
These are sold in pairs for easier addition to your existing track layout. They will come packaged under the new part number. In this way you can be sure they are new and unused.
