Model railroad track laying tips: curves, easements, and superelevation. Do you want to know how to get great looking, smooth running curves on you model railroad track? In this segment I show you how I layout easements to transition from straight tangent track into fixed radius curves. I also show how I superelevate curves to give them a more smooth, natural appearance when trains run through them.
