Hi All!

I'm thinking of buying some track off good old Craigslist. The person can't figure out how to tell what kind of track it is. I can't either from the pic, hopefully someone here can!

In the pic there is a very distinctive tight curve, I suspect not too many companies make this, therefore figuring out who made the rest will be easy... I hope!

Thanks,

Ted

"Brand" is usually molded into the bottom of each piece of track. Or need a pic of the connection style with a ruler.

Tomy, can tell by the red and white barrier on the curve.
