I cant really get my head round what sort of jig you would need to make up to do say a tight 90 degree curve? Cool idea though, a custom made one with a battery train pack would make a much better present than a off the shelf trackset. I no, tell me too, i have been looking on how to make these, and so far my idea has been, go to the thrift store, buy some old trains, rip the wheels off, and build on top. I was thinking of using steel washers and small steel bolts though a slightly larger hole for the axial. I have started using discarded styrofoam (large pieces are best) and a soldering iron to create structures with track melted in. I’m also trying to wrap my had around how to do more complicated things such as a switch. I make the female connector by marking the hole and channel from a purchased section then drill the hole and cut the channel with the band saw.


SO am interested in making my own wooden train tracks, however I just cannot seem to wrap my head around how to make a piece with more than one curved track on it, i understand using a router from the outside radius, but to do it from the inside radius is eluding me, any tips?? I didn’t keep any notes from when I made my jig, so I went back to the way I calculated it before. One bit makes the female connector with a single pass, another makes the male connector in two passes, and the third makes the tracks themselves. My solution for making rolling stock has been to buy the super cheap sets at the dollar store and rob the wheels from there. Use a router table and make a jig for the curves, have a look around the net, there are quite a few ideas.
They look a little more like car wheels than train wheels, but paint them black and it’s hard to tell the difference.
Im thinking its easier to make with those are they even sold by the pack does anyone know ?


All of the arcs that make up the track have the same center — the outside edge of the track, the outside groove, the inside groove, the inside edge. I am using ply wood and the router knocks bits of the ply off which is a problem, if I were using solid timber then it may be a different story.
I used them to make a train (locomotive, tender, and three passenger cars) for my son for his birthday one year. Both male and female ends are melted in to allow for connection to the rest of his wooden tracks.
