I need advice on laying flex track.
Are there any tricks to getting smooth curves?----- to get a good
transition from a flextrack curve to straight standard Marklin track?----
best way to trim rail length?

- Of perhaps limited interest and circulation, but the Modelling the
Railways of SA Convention notes include two fantastic articles
arguing that 'track is a model too' and suggesting a variety of ways
of replicating the look of Australian track.
On the mainlines track is well sleepered, but Australian branchlines
are infamous for light rail and widely and unevenly spaced
sleepers. On many narrow gauge lines with wood sleepers, every
fourth or fifth sleeper would be steel, the intention being to hold
the rails in gauge.
In Z, modelling it would require the use of code 30 rail at least,
but code 25 would be better.
