ST-44/45 dilemma
« on: April 15, 2019, 08:36:00 PM »
Hi all, I've tried to get the ST-44/45 curved points to align with 2nd/3rd radius curves but there seems to be a problem with them joining, are they not designed to join together? The Peco packaging shows them connected together, using 2 B curves and an A small straight, they don't seem to align with the other track. Thanks.

The inclusion of the straight between the two points appears to be crucial in keeping everything lined up.

The link I posted above shows a curve between the points rather than a straight. Is the diagram wrong? :uneasy:
