    Hi, Im new here,

    I'd like to ask why is the old shinohara Hon3 track has ties so close together and so wide. Also there are so many of them. What railroad had track like this?
    Ive got a bunch of the stuff and I'd like to ask: do i get rid of everyother tie to make it look prototypical or is ther a narrow guage road which had track like this? Ive never seen it in any book referencing colorado or more western railroads. The swithces are the same. close ties and very wide. Id appreciate any help from those with more wisdom.

    Many Thanks,


    ps. Im modeling American narrow guage in the Czech Republic. Im the only one so far as I know.
