The Kato UNITRACK Master (BM) and Variation (V) sets are the ultimate expansion track sets, perfect for beginners who are looking to get started in the hobby, while also providing complex structures for those seeking to create more complex and advanced layouts! Starting with the base Master Set, you can expand to create any layout you desire by adding as many Variation sets or individual unitrack pieces as you like! Each Variation set box contains a complete layout landmark, whether it's a staging yard, a passing siding, or a flyover viaduct bridge.

BM2 Basic Oval and Siding with latest Kato Power Pack Includes:

  • Complete oval of track (12 3/8"" radius)
  • Grade crossing/rerailing track
  • Passing Siding
  • Storage Drawer for locomotives/accessories
  • Kato Power Pack with UK transformer incorporating a 3 pin plug.

Layout size: 2019 x 751 mm


Kato's line of ground level UNITRACK offers a variety of pieces and turnouts to allow you to build any layout your heart desires, all while ensuring track quality and steady delivery of electricity to your locomotives. Available both as individual pieces and as track sets, let Kato UNITRACK be the first track you put down, and you may never use another track again!

UNITRACK can be used in nearly any layout situation - large or small, permanent or temporary. UNITRACK can be the answer for the beginner looking for a trouble-free introduction into model railroading without the frustration and disappointment of rail and electrical problems. UNITRACK also meets the needs of advanced hobbyists, providing superior quality to an entire layout or the flexible solution to the ever-changing "staging yard."

This modular track system features nickel-silver rails fully integrated to a remarkably realistic-looking roadbed. The patented Unijoiners (included) lock the track sections together firmly and evenly. The frustration of derailments resulting from uneven rail joints and separating sections is eliminated.

There's no need to glue down cork roadbed; tack down track sections and file rail connections smooth after soldering. Simply snap it together and you're ready to go.

Everyone has a different space to layout the track, but you may need to add in some extension leads to be able to have more flexibility with the relative location of points and controller. We recommend 2 x 24-841 Turnout Extension Cord/Cable and 2 x 24-825 DC Extension Cord/Cable.

  1. Simon Abbot

    A fantastic starter set at a great price. Everything you need to get going with Kato N Gauge. Having the passing loop is a nice feature and works well by adding a station and running two trains stopping alternately. It also gives the option of using it as a small siding which adds interest to train movements.
    All very easy to get set up and great for a non-permanent set up as it's easy to put up and then pack away again. Perfect!

    I bought this set a couple of weeks ago, and it arrived very quickly and safely. It's a brilliant starter set, at first you might think it's quite expensive, but when you see what you get in the set, you soon realize what great value it actually is. The Kato track clips together so easily, the wiring all plugs in where it should, and the whole system just works perfectly.
    Well done Kato, and thanks to Train Trax for your superb service.
