It's two different brands. Same standards.
Is one an American company and the other a British company ? when you say the same standards do you mean the track specification are the same, size and geometric s. I have purchased a box of PECO HO/OO Flex track 100 will it work with PICO track?Can you refer me to a good website where I can get engineering specifications for their track, turnouts etc .... Many Thanks .... Toledo Ohio.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Piko (stylized PIKO, pronounced "peek-oh") is a German model train brand in Europe that also exports to the United States and other parts of the world
Founded in 1949, PIKO was once a state-owned enterprise in the German Democratic Republic (East Germany), supplying a share of model trains in Eastern Europe. In 1992, after the reunification of Germany, the company was purchased by PIKO Spielwaren GmbH.[2] PIKO Spielwaren GmbH was founded in April 1992 by Dr. René F. Wilfer, PIKO’s President, who had been working in the toy industry since 1986 and had previously managed a model building company.

I have both Peco and Piko double slip switches connected to atlas flex track. If they are the same code they match other wise you need rail joiners that convert such as code 100 to code 83.
