Hello Everyone,
I'm fairly new to Marklin trains so please bear with me.
I will be building a layout soon,and it will include Marklin along with Lionel O gauge,American Flyer S gauge and a few other gauges.
My question is, does Marklin make (or made) track that has aproximately a 72" circle?
I'm looking for a wide curve to go with the other gauges of track I have.
I would prefer to use M track but I don't think they made wide curves for that type.
Do they make the newer track with the plastic roadbed in wide curves.

Thank you for your help,
Carl T.

Marklin make C track in 5 different radius, the largest (R5) being 643mm (25").


There is also an R9 piece of track, but it is only available in 12.1 degree pieces. The radius of that piece is 1114.6mm (43 7/8")

You could use the flex track in the K track range. That way you can have whatever radii you desire.

Welcome to the forum Carl! The largest M-track curve was R2 or about 17" radius.

C track is the newer track with the plastic roadbed.
