Closing loops

I'm new to this site and to the hobby so I might be asking a stupid question but here goes anyway. I tried to make a loop with a diagonal in it so I could reverse the train but no matter what I tried it wouldn't close.  The closest I could get was a 5/16 gap.  I realize I could change the tolerance but will the track fit when I put it together in real life?  I noticed that Thrush posted some curves that had 3 connector circles together, is that a method of fudging?  If it is what happens when you actually build the track?


Hi Arnold,
What is the track system that you are using? If we know that, it might be a lot easier to answer your question!

Since I was only experimenting with your program anyway I decided to use n arnold track.
