Thanks for the explanation.
I know that most set track is not that precise, but another way would be
to assemble a full circle af a given radius track, measure the diameter
of that and divide by two. It would give a mean radius that can be used
Wolf knows me well enough to know that I know.
That would work, except that on both occassions (15"R and 22"R) I
utilized a half circle.
The 15" is the inner curve of a 5 parallel track turnaround in my
staging yard and the 22"R is the end curve on a 1200mm wide baseboard.
Both are now under other tracks and scenery. I originally used Liliput
curves for the 15"radius but each section _wasn't_ 30 degrees even
though that was Liliput's intention! The Atlas track is much better.
The point of using set-track in those situations is that the curve is
more accurate and stable than attempting to use flexible track. I've
soldered all the joints with the exception of several isolating joins
for train queueing. Those gaps would have ensured that flexible track
would have sprung outwards.

Firstly apologies for continually replying to my own post. I sent DRail an
e-mail describing the problem. Got a reply back this evening. That's
good service so I think I'm about to splash the cash!
