Kato Atlas Conversion

I am planning on having Kato Unitrack fit with a Atlas code 80 track heading into a Atlas turntable. How would I make the conversion between Kato and Atlas tracks, and any potential problems?

Thank you!

I'll assume you will be using "standard" Atlas track (without the plastic roadbed), so your main issue is with the height difference to the Unitrack. I've gone from Atlas track to Kato bridges with no real issues.........you just pop off the Kato joiner and I used a regular Atlas joiner. Kato also makes an adapter to go from Unitrack to flex or sectional track. If you are using the Atlas track with the plastic roadbed, there isn't an adapter available.
