Default 32 inch diameter circle

I want to build a circle of train track on the outside of a wine barrel. The inside diameter of the circle needs to be 32 inches. Can anyone tell me if this needs to be 15 degree track and if so how many pieces of track I will need? Thanks

Hartland used to make a "barrel" kit. Cicrle of track, clips and the train shown here. HLW 10205.



I would call Hartland and ask if the track is still available, and the clips. Or you might find a kit in stock somewhere.

Aristo also made 2 different "sets" of track: There are two pre-made circles of track, a 21" circle ITEM #: ART11140, and a 32" circle ITEM #: ART11145.

This is out of stock, no longer made and hard to find, but you have the part numbers to search, it shows up on ebay every so often.

Failing that, you need to bend your own circle.. use long flex tracks to do, fewer joiners.

I have bent these with one piece of flex track, it is not easy. Not easy to ship either.

I used a 8 foot brass flex track and when bent it came out to 29 inches and only needed 2 clamps total!!

The Aristo track has been out of production for a long time now, I am constantly on the look for it and I haven't seen any anywhere for a couple years now. HLW is the only company still supplying that diameter of track. You'll have to call them directly to see if they have any still in stock. That's your best bet short of bending your own track.

Heyn in Germany offers R0 code 332 curved brass track.
The diameter measured to the centre-line is about 33 1/4 inches.
Maybe that's an option.
