UPDATE 8/9/2021: We have found a manufacturer to make our new large spikes. Instead of stainless steel they will be made in nickel silver. We expect to expect to receive our new order of large spikes within the next month.
Medium spikes come in bags of 800 and are commonly used on 1:32 Standard Gauge Ties.
Our large spikes come in 2oz, 4oz, 8oz, 1lb, and 2.5lb bags and are commonly used on 1:20.3 Narrow Gauge Ties. For an estimate of quantity, 2oz of spikes yield around 500pcs, 4oz 1,000pcs, 8oz 2,000pcs, 1lb 4,000pcs, and 2.5lbs 10,000pcs.
If laying track for outdoor use, it is recommended to use the large spikes regardless of the scale you are modeling. The large spikes are much more durable and will hold up to the changing seasons for a longer amount of time. For this reason, we use large spikes when building all of our turnouts and crossings in both 1:20.3 and 1:32 scales.
