With Bachmann, if it has a black road bed then it is steel, but if it has a grey road bed then it is nickel silver...Hi polo,
You might consider checking out Atlas True Track.
It's cheap, widely available, has nickel silver code 83 rail (I think Bachmann ez track is steel),
I am not too familiar with HO scale, but if no one makes 36" radius curves, you could always buy flex track and make your ownThanks very much guys!
If I want black track and not gray...
What exactly do I need to make a 72" diameter "circle"?
Am I right in understanding that there is no way to make a 72" diameter perfect circle?
And I will need some curved pieces and some straight pieces?
Thanks for all of your help, I really am new to this!
Boston & Maine is right no one makes that big of a radius curve that I know of and I have been looking for larger radius turns for a long time so the only way to make your size circle is to get flex track wich is fairly easy to work with and get the shape you want or you can use the above listed track types but you will need straight track between each curve piece on both sides and is very easy to put together and do your self a favor get the gray ballast it works much better than the black. I have used both and the gray runs much more problem free and less cleaning. I also would sugest instead of a cirlce just makeing a rectangle this will not need straight track in between curve sections and will look much neater than the above options (this is what I normally do for all the trains I run under my Christmas Tree) but the choice is completly up to you.I am not too familiar with HO scale, but if no one makes 36" radius curves, you could always buy flex track and make your own
