I bought 4 Scalextric classic track quarter straights at a swapmeet yesterday. When I got home I noticed that the rails on one of them were not parallel to the track. Also the track is slightly wedge shaped, 88mm long on one side and 81mm long on the other.

Clearly this track belongs with some other specialised track, but which one? Is it rare?, valuable?, junk?

The number on the back is MM/PT99L.

Good pickup. They are used for making banked curves out of normal flat standard curves using one as a lead in, another as a lead out. As such, they pre-date the invention of the banked curve track.

Cheers

Thanks for the help.

So this bit of track is no good on its own. Is there anyone out there who can use it?

That's two weeks now and JcRacer43 hasn't replied to my email. Does anyone else want this track or does it go in the garbage next Wednesday?

The track has been posted; you should have it by the end of the week.
