Dear smittyjesse,

I assume you are talking about the plastic clips that hold adjacent track sections together, not the "power pack to track" electrical connector.

Remind us how many straights and how many curves come with the set, please.

Thanks.   

Sincerely,

Count the straight and curved pieces of track you have.

Bachmann Track Connecting Clips
Long clip:   for straight-to-straight track and straight-to-curved track
Short clip:  for curved-to-curved track

Don’t know if you have a Long or Short clip in your hand, what the clip is for is on the side of the clip.

Dear smittyjesse,

It depends on your track configuration.

For an oval with 4 straights on each side,  10 short clips and 10 long clips.

Max short clips needed: 12 for plain circle.

Max long clips needed: 16 (plus 4 short) for a "near circle" with alternating curves and straights,  (curve, straight, curve, curve, straight) X 4.

Hope this helps. 

Sincerely,

Joe Satnik
