    The current ply sleepers I have in stock are the ones that are for P4. These were ordered about 4-5 years ago. I could have a batch made to suit using the 2mm rivets. However…….

    The supplier that both ourselves and the Scalefour society use have declined to quote for a new batch based on their belief they cannot make them to the required dimensional quality control. I am not sure what has changed

    This is disturbing as when my current supply of the 2mm rivets run out I may not be able  to get anymore. Is this the beginning of the end of the traditional track building method???

    If anyone knows of a company that makes such things I will follow it up. Otherwise I will have remove the 2.5mm rivets from the inventory
