MTH pantograph insulators and 072 track
Posted by trains2353 on Wednesday, September 04, 2019 7:50 AM

I'm missing two on my scale MTH GG1. Any idea where to find some?

Also, does anybody make 072 tubular track in o27?

Thanks;

Have you tried MTH themselves?  I have had good luck getting parts from them.

I have O gauge O72 track, but I do not believe they made O72 in O27 profile track. I seem to remember Kevin on here search for a while and found out it was no produced.

Gargraves is 027 in height. Also, K-Line made 072 track in 027 height. Check for used track at train shows.
