Laying track curves when model railroading may seem like a simple issue, but there can be much more to the skill than meets the eye. People new to model railroading are sometimes unaware that model train track curves are sold in various radii that allow users to fit Author: Randall Roberts.

    There are lots of resources available relating to model trains and railroads, many of which are credible, interesting, educational and fun to review. I have named a few of these within the pages of this website. However, I thought it might be a good service to provide one whole page dedicated to my favorite research and reference material that may be helpful as you are planning and building.   Experience has shown that care needs to be taken when laying this track to ensure that the ties are as perpendicular to the rail as possible, and not angled, to avoid reducing the gauge of the rails. This is especially important on curves, and when running the larger Forney type locomotives.

Once you start laying track, you begin to see your layout beginning to develop – your dream coming to fruition so to speak.

Pull the rear driver and figure out how to allow it more side to side motion. Narrow the bushing on the driver bearing, or narrow where it slides in the frame. A caveat: ten-coupled O Scale rarely works well on less than 72" radius.
