Len - How do you explain the picture that shows 10 curves on each end and 6 straights? Why do they include 20 curves if it only takes 18?
I must be doing something wrong in figuring this.
I was hoping maybe Bachmann folks would enlighten us.

Hunt - I know he could have made it work on the other one without exact pieces. I didn't want to start a newbie off on the wrong foot by telling him to cheat a little. I didn't think he had easy access to hobby shops so that he  could run down and get more pieces or different pieces if he needed. Once he gets some running time, he'll want to change it around and then he can start experimenting.

In working with AnyRail, I found that I could use a list of all the E-Z track HO pieces and their product numbers without looking at them piece by piece since AnyRail just lists the product numbers on the side panel. I compiled this so it would be easier for me.

In the picture of the full layout, you can count the 10 curved pieces on the right side of it. It has me befuddled now.
With 6 straights, it should look like the bottom Anyrail diagram I did and there would be a lot of fudging to get that to line up. I don't know how they did it.
I even tried adding combinations of 4.5", 3", 2.25", and 2" pieces and I couldn't get it to line up perfect in Anyrail.

I know Bachmann has been selling these packs for years and people have been using them so they must fit together. The picture does show 6 straights, though, with the piers under the joints. On the bottom, you can clearly see the rail joiners on the three straights.

Please help. Now, I am confused.
I just did these in Anyrail. One is 20 -18" curves and 4 - 9" straights. The other is 20 -18" curves and 6 - 9" straights.
What am I doing wrong? It's not matching up.
20 18's and 4 9's

20 18's and 6 9's

What's interesting is that the picture that Bachmann shows for the Steel Alloy E-Z TRACKฎ Over-Under Figure 8 Track Pack (HO Scale). This is off of Bachmann's product page.
The picture shows that it has 6 straights but the list of track only indicates 4 straights are included.
Set includes:
    19 pieces 18″ radius curved track
    1 piece 18″ radius curved terminal rerailer
    4 pieces of 9" straight track
    14-piece graduated pier set (3 1/8" vertical clearance under the tallest pier)
    power wire

Good eye. That makes sense.
26  Discussion Boards / General Discussion / Re: Photos that make you go "Hmm..." on: November 05, 2017, 05:28:59 PM
Thanks for that. That is very informative. I didn't know crossings were built elsewhere and brought in. I didn't know they were one piece that could be lifted out and set aside. I just thought they were constructed on site.

A photo by James Belmont on the Railroad Fools Facebook page. Is this a "crossing in progress" or has the track with the siding been abandoned? http://www.bachmanntrains.com/home-usa/board/index.php?action=post;board=1.0

Len - I'm not opposed to a little "wiggling" myself but he was ordering a whole package of of track and is in a different country. I wanted to figure it out so he would get the right stuff to begin with and not have to worry about it fitting together right.

I bought a book a few years ago that is guide to all the tourist railroads and museums. I take that with me when I travel somewhere. I don't do anything model related, but I do visit the sites that might be close to where I'm going. Sometimes, I go specifically to an area to visit the railroad stuff.
