Atlas 2090 N CODE 55 TRACK, Rail Joiner (24 pcs./blister) ATLAS is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.


Any one order these from Train World before. A few weeks ago I received a packet of these, and these are the worst rail joiners I have seen. None of them fit my Atlas flex track, I can't get them pushed on. Maybe I just got a bad batch?

N Scale rail joiners are tough to get on at the best of times, I need a magnifier and use needle nose pliers to do it. People will jump up and down on me for this but try either Universal Rail Joiners or Peco Rail Joiners (code 55 obviously). I've used both and have rarely had an issue with any of them. what issues I have had have generally been me not lining them up properly for insertion.

Atlas gets most of its stuff made on the cheap in South Africa (at last report) so who knows what the quality is really like.


I got some from my local hobby store today to try, hopefully they will be better, if not, I'll order some of the Peco's.
