    Default Unitrack balloon

    Has anyone made a decent balloon track (either off set or center) using the 348mm 45 degree curves? I saw lots of examples for t Trak but those are in a smaller radius then I am looking to do. I am curious as to what to use for straight pieces. For now I can just use code 80 flex but would like to be all Kato Id possible

    I forget what I used for my Unitrack balloon module, I'll have to check my SCARM file to see.

    Also, I would recommend downloading a track planning software (I use SCARM) to try out different combinations.

    I'm not allowed to run the train, the whistle I can't blow. I'm not allowed to say how fast the Railroad Train can go.
    I'm not allowed to shoot off steam, nor even clang the bell. But let the damned Train jump the track, and see who catches hell!

    Using the free scarm I believe I can get close if the back section uses 4 248s, while the angled leg uses 2 248s, 124, and a 33 prior to the 45 back to center.
