Haha. Yeah. Cork is funny down at sub 18" radius, but I'm not worried about it. As long as the top is flat and the flex flows nicely I'm fine.

I guess he cut the cork twice and it’s still too short.

Ooh, nicely flowing flex. Wait a minute, we're still talking about track laying right?  :D

Generally 15". There's one place it's tighter, but it's a disused yard track.

Well, for the past few months it's been holding up my TTRAK modules.

There were two things that slowed down progress to the point where I wanted to play with something else for a bit:
1. Prepping Atlas Code 55 switches.  It was getting me down and not bringing me joy so I took a break. I also have become a bit concerned about my chosen mounting method which further took the wind out of my sails.
2. I keep accumulating rolling stock that isn't just coal cars and that's been giving me pause on if I'll be satisfied with it once I build it.

So I'm not sure what I'm doing with it right now.
