Hi All,

I am very new to this board and am seeking advice. I have a Christmas tree skirt that is 122cm approx in diameter. I am wanting to place my HO scale train underneath the tree this year and wondering what would be the perfect curved track to purchase to make the perfect circle around the skirt.

Any advice is appreciated
thanks 1 user liked this useful post by scottyg

do you want it inside or outside the skirt..?

C track 24430 have a radius of 57.93cm and 24530 has a radius of 64.36mm

12x 24430 would give you a diameter of 115.86cm
12x 24530 would give you a diameter of 128.72cm

You can also alternate between 430 and 530 pieces for an intermediate sized circle. It will hardly distort the visual aspect of a pure circle, at such big radius.

Thank you both. Inside the skirt would be the best. This gives me some ideas
