Rail Roller

I did not want to use the blog for Fast Tracks promotion, but I am really excited about this new tool!

I asked my brother (Russ) to work on developing a reasonably priced rail bender a while back. He came up with a real winner!

Tonight I decided to work on some of the lower mainline for the lower deck of my Port Kelsey Ry, and required a curved turnout to make it all work. Building a curved turnout needs a lot of curved rail, and the “Rail Roller” he developed works great!

Or course, Russ made me a custom version….
