    I'm thinking of swapping the 2-unit Atlas Warren truss for the single piece Kato Warren Truss bridge, but I need to know how well I can connect the Kato bridge to Atlas track. Do teh regular track joiners work?

    The kato track is very very much like atlas code 80 track. You can join the track with special KATO - to - Atlas converters, or you can use the existing Atlas rail joiners by removing the kato rail joiner and possible some ties from your atlas track.

    I recomend NOT using the Atlas connector but rather remove the first 2 ties of the flex or secional Atlas track and 2 Kato connectors. The Kato connectors are more reliable!
