  1. Jakob, as most model railroaders would know, Atlas had snap track long before this. In all seriousness, it was a fast way to rebuild. Just roll up a gondola full of track panels and drop them in place. Not many guys wearing hard hats or orange vests back then.

  2. I did not know that track panels were used that long ago.
