aristrocraft ties
Posted by the hv rr on Wednesday, March 2, 2022 1:35 PM

I have had a garden railroad for several years now and the plastic ties are in bad shape, with the little tabs that hold the track on are broke due to the weather and having to move the track once in a while. Now that Aristcraft is no longer around, does any one know if another brand of ties will fit my 332 ss track? In less i am not looking in the right places, I can not find the ties. You can e-mail me at 44rar@comcast.net, or on the form here. Thanks a lot for any information.

Not off hand...I find that the folks at TrainLi TRAINLI - LGB and G-scale Experts have always been able to help me with stuff like this.  have you reached out to them or other suppliers?

I personally use LGB and Piko track on my outdoor railway.  The majority of my LGB track has been outdoors for 15 or more years on both 2 ground level layouts and now on my raised railway.  I have not had any issues with the ties getting brittle.  The Piko track is 4 years old now or there about.  No issues so far.  I only went with the Piko as LGB did not offer the curve radius I needed for the raised railway I bought.  When I redo my curves, I am going up to the newer LGB 15.5 foot diameter curves and will be back to 100% LGB track.    Mike

He wants ties for his existing stainless steel rail.

Genuine aristo replacement ties are still available if you look.
