How Many Ways Can You Use Curved Track?

Trains Go Left, Trains Go Right, Trains Go Round and Round

Curved pieces of track have a multitude of uses, more than you might at first expect. Sure, they take you around the corner, but they really do more than that.

You can use 4 curves to make a circle and have your train go around and around and around. Granted, that would get a little tiresome after a while, depending on your age. It might actually be something your 2-year-old would appreciate.

You can open up that circle and add curved track that waggles back and forth, left and right, for as much space as you have available and then bring it back together again at the far end with another half-circle.

With the addition of a single piece of cross track (something you probably already own), you can do a figure eight. If you have multiple cross tracks, you can string several eights (if you can still call them that) together in a row.

Throw in some elevation ramps and supports and your figure eight can loop over itself instead of crossing itself.

Why All This Talk of Curved Track Pieces?

Quite frankly, I’ve got over 100 pieces of it in the store that I’d love to sell to you.

I’m not exactly sure why I have so many “extra” curved pieces of track. Whenever I acquire new GeoTrax, there almost always seems to be some curves left over after I organize the other bits into sets. Over time my accumulation has just kept increasing.

Here is where you can find it in the GeoTrax Store.

Get some today before it’s all gone!

No, wait! Who am I trying to kid? It’ll never be all gone. As long as I keep getting more GeoTrax, I’ll always have some curved pieces left over, right? So, unless you really want all 104 (as of this writing) pieces, take your time and make a wise decision. Maybe you’ll want to get something else from the store too.

Christmas is still many months away, but birthdays happen throughout the year. Add a few pieces to a nice set that your children or grandchildren would love.
