I'm laying some True Track and need less than a 22.5 degree segment on a 22" radius curve. I figure I can just cut a piece of True Track, roadbed & all to the proper length. But before I start hacking with a saw, Dremel cut off wheel, etc, I'm thinking someone must have done this before and maybe has a tip or two.

Well, it's not as simple as just using flex track, but it's not too hard, either. True Track is just Atlas Code 83 SnapTrack pressure fit onto plastic roadbed.

Pull the track piece off and cut the track and roadbed separately. You will have to remove a tie at the end to slip the rail joiner on; you can file the spike and tie plate detail off of that tie and slip it back into the roadbed before you lay the track. You might also have to file the end of the roadbed to allow room for the joiner.
