I dont know about the track, but no, the two systems are different. Trix is wired as three separately electrically independent rails and Hornby Dublo 3 rail works electrically like two rail except it uses the centre rail as one contact and both outer rails as the other contact.
Another thing to note. I have bought a few Trix wagons and their gauge is slightly narrower in where the wheel flanges sit, and their wheel flanges are too deep for Hornby Dublo track. This means if I wanted to use them with my small Dublo collection, I would need to mount them on a lathe to work on the flanges. Widening the gauge is easy as one just pulls the plastic wheels on their metal axles.

Thank you - this is all a new experience for me, asking questions to which I don't have a clue about the answer is not something I normally do.

A few more pictures added to the collection already posted.

The last few of a tray of accessories as well as track and wagons/carriages.

Another member is getting much of the 3 rail Dublo and Trix as I've decided not to sell or use it and they have indicated they will use it.
