    Are any H0/ H0m tram (grooved rail) track crossings with railroad track and
    (H0 only, of course :) ) tram- railroad (grooved rail- railroad rail)
    transitions ever produced for sale?

    Tram- railroad crossings are used to cross industrial railroad spurs with
    tram lines on one level. Tram- railroad transitions are used to make
    possible using railroad track- maintenance technic on the tram network. And
    also some tram lines may have railroad rail tracks- so the tram- railroad
    transitions connect these railroad rail tram lines with the conventional
    grooved rail ones.

    Are you talking about dual gauge trackage? The only commercially available is/was in HO/HOn3. Lambert used to make it. It's still available, well as long as the hobby shop that's been stocking it for the last 30 yrs is still in business.:D :cry:

    I don't know if narrow guage trackage crossing standard guage track was ever produced commercially, but would be an interesting project.

    AHM made one many years ago. They fetch a reeeeeeeally good price on Ebay when they show up---upwards of $40 or more at times. Peco makes an HOe line though I don't know if it would include HO/HOe crossings.
