Hi, can anyone advise me what the two radii are, that make up a Peco Curved Set Track point? Have looked around on the net, but can't see any info anywhere, but could do with knowing, without having to buy one! Ta. Joe

They join with 2nd and 3rd radius curves, but need a half-length 2nd radius curve between the two to work. The Peco catalogue says they are not simple arcs, so it's not possible to actually quote the radius.
Best bet is to get the Peco catalogue and see the plan on pages 16/17 which shows the way the setrack fits together, including their new No. 4 radius curves.

Regards,
John Webb
