Re: [z_scale] Curves with Peco and LThek roadbed
The problem is in the alloy used to make Peco track.
You will find that Micro-Trains Line flex track has
much better qualities as for shaping your curves,
not only that, it looks better. The MTL alloy has "memory",
that is, if you bend it a certain direction it tends to stay
curved, whereas the Peco track tend to whip back to
a straight line unless you use nails to hold it in place.
