Modern Russian R65 Railroad Track Section, 1520mm Gauge
. The kit consists of two main resin details - track sections of R65 rails (1 meter of rail weighs 65kg) and concrete sleepers, steel baseplates and bolting. Joint bars are added as separate details. Sections are solid enough but configurable, made of nice grey coloured resin and cast on rectangle base 3mm thick.

Both sections can be connected using joint bars without any misalignment. Any manufacturer's 1/35 rolling stock of 1520mm gauge can be set on these tracks - I tried to roll an MPS freight car axle on the rails. It rolls!

Also I'd like to use it in diorama building - like a base for tanks crossing a railroad, tank's suspension can work very well.

No ballast is supplied - you will have to find it separately.

Verdict
Extremely high detailing. No bubbles. Simple to use for those who do not want to do jeweler's work.

No ballast gravel is included. You should be very accurate in painting. The sections are packaged in a soft package.

Modern Russian R65 Railroad Track Section, 1520mm Gauge is a must-have for modern 1520 fans.
