NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT -- Jubilee Track ( I ) Radius Curves

We have been asked this exact question; “Could you make a complete loop of track to fit into my back garden?” This is what we have come up with.

Our new ( I ) radius curve is 9.4 meters radius {30.9 feet in old money}. Which is nearly half the radius of our ( A ) curve at 16 M {50 feet}. The ( I ) curve allows sharper turns, ideal for the smaller garden and similar confined spaces. This new design is derived directly from our original track panels, which have been proven to be of a popular design which easily slots together, meaning an entire railway can be built in just minutes.


The new panels have been developed to become part of our growing product range and are available to purchase through the online shop. All of our panels are cross compatible, meaning any MRW Jubilee track section can be connected to another, with different combinations complex railways can be produced, satisfying your demands for a miniature railway.

We carefully test all of the track panels in CAD before releasing them as a product. We hope to get some promotional photos of the real thing as soon as the current lock-down is over.

The ( I ) curve compared to the ( A ) curve requires less panels to make a complete loop, to see this better take a look at the technical drawing in this post.

MRW track is made right here in the UK, by us, using UK suppliers and stockists. The design uses mild steel and plastic wood giving a hardworking and reliable track panel that will last for many years. The Plastic wood is ideal for this application as it dampens noise when running trains on concrete whilst maintaining an authentic “Minimal Railway” look to the track panels.The plastic wood we use is made from 100% recycled material and can be 100% recycled at end of life.

Despite the ( I ) curve being smaller than the (A) curve, we have increased its angle and hence increasing it's arc length. This gives a section length similar to the (A) curve and still using the five sleepers.

We think this product is great and are proud to be selling it through our website. All of our products can be ordered directly through the website with postage calculated on weight. To order your own tack panel today head over to the product page:

Technical drawing of the (A) and ( I ) radius curves

Technical drawing of the (A) and ( I ) radius curves showing the angels that have been mentioned throughout this post. You can see that the ( I ) curve is of a greater angle than the (A) We intend to manufacture a 2.8 degree ( I ) curve which will help you build complete circles , U shapes and right angles with this radius. Please take a look at the track plan to see how these two curves can be used to make a complete railway.



A complete loop and siding made with a combination of ( I ) curves, (A) curves standard straight section and one of our right hand points which are currently under development.

We are always open to help you design a railway with our standard track sections so please do send us a message about what you are looking for; whether it be a figure of 8 or a simple out and back with a few curves to miss the shed!
