I have seen the new brights a scietific trains but never knew they were compatable with the G scale.  I personally would rather use brass, plastic in my area would beak in no time.  If anyone has any pictures of these trains that were kitbashed into something more realistic I would love to see some of them.  The before and after.

Yes Scientific and New Blight are both 45mm gauge, but niether is compatable with brass track and beleive it or not, each other as well. The joiners on each are opposite the other, IOWs putting a peice from each together the joiners will hit each other. Crazy!

   Have fun with your trains

NB did make turnouts but thay are very rare and most sellers want top dollar. Just keep surfing the net and look for good buys.
