    When did Atlas start using nickel – silver track? Is it a good idea to buy older track like this?

    I don't know when nickle silver became more prevalent, but there is nothing electrically wrong with brass. Once painted and weathered, it looks fine. As long as you clean it to remove the oxides (Which don't conduct electricity) you should be fine.

    I would not pay very much for brass track though, unless you are some sort of collector and want it in unused condition in original packaging... ;)
