    Hello. In this thread I will show, how to curve flex track with rail bender from Fast Tracks. Usage of rail bender gives you two advantages:
    1. You will get curves without kinks.
    2. You can lay flex track on your layout very easily, because it will be already pre bended to needed radius.

    The process of curving flex track with rail bender can be broken in three steps:
    1) Remove rails from ties.
    2) Use rail bender to curve rails to desired radius
    3) Install curved rails back on ties.

    This is detailed video guide, where you can watch how to use rail bender to curve flex track:

    Hello. This rail bender can be used to bend rails in vertical direction. For example, if you build layout with two levels, you may want to make smooth transition from first level of layout to the second level. In this case you will need to bend rails in vertical direction. In my video you can see, how to do it (watch since 26:27).
