Re: Are track nails (8999) made of gold ?
- Micro Engineering sells them. #30-106 for N scale. Many hobby shops
but not direct. Work perfect, if you're not just gluing it down. (use
white or yellow glue, Hobby Tack from Woodland Scenics or most any Tack
glue found at craft supply stores) Use simple 'push pins' to hold in
place until the glue dries (a few very short ours for white or yellow
glue, seconds for CA or up to a day for Tack glues).
