    Has anyone tried to curve one of these? It would have the straight roads curved one would be about 8'6" rad. and the other one about 8'3" rad.

    We may just have to build one to fit the space but if the Peco one could be made to fit it would save a good bit of time.

    Surely you'll mess the geometry up and the switches won't work properly ? I know there's a lot of slop in F/S but ......
    You'd be better off designing a scratch built job.

    Here’s a single slip on a curve, it only took a couple of evenings to make. I agree with Colin I don’t think it will work trying to “ curve “ one, also have you seen the price of a Peco double slip :eek:, that’s an expensive gamble...
