The track I am after seems unavailable at any riggers here.

It is a U shape with the tops of the u folded in. On the centreline are blind holes for the stoppers and countersunk holes for securing. Both at 2" centers and 3/8" clearance. I need a 4'-0" length but if you have a bit more, no problem.

I am located i NSW Australia.

OOOOps! The pic didn't come out quite as I hoped.

Here is a bigger one, The with is 1-3/8", height is 3/4" and the gap is 9/16"

Thank you for the question.

The track has probably been out of production for a few years, so I am hoping somebody has got one amongst the cob webs at the back of the shed.

An option would be to make a traveller track out of aluminium flat bar -- have a look at this company's product list :- HERE

The listing is in a spread sheet - the Bar numbers in question are :- EAO 110; EAO 112 and

EAO 113.

Here's a sketch of what could be put together :-

PS:

have a look at their EAO 224 with this one all you have to do is cut the gap.

Thank You!!! Brilliant, I owe you one.

The EA0224 will do very nicely indeed. I will call them tomorrow.
