The Unitrack Advantage:

When it was first introduced to the Japanese model train market in 1957, Kato UNITRACK was revolutionary because it provided the convenience of a snap track with none of the drawbacks - the patented Unijoiner clips hold rails tightly together but are easily disconnected, allowing modelers to reliably assemble and disassemble their track sections over and over and over again, without worrying about loosening joints, breaking clips, or lessening the electrical conductivity between track segments!

While much in the hobby in the last 50 years has changed, Kato UNITRACK has remaind THE ideal track system in both N and HO scales for modelers looking for reliability and ease of use; whether building fully detailed scenic layouts or temporary setups that can be operated around a christmas tree or a dining room table!
