    Welcome to the Gauge. You might try to ask the same question in the Large Scale/O gauge forum. O-27 refers to the diameter of a circle made with that track rather than radius as most of us modeling in the smaller scales are more familier with. Have you tried entering a 27 inch diameter into your extracad program?

    Welcome to the Gauge, hope you enjoy your stay as much as I do!

    I use 3rd PlanIt, you can choose different manufacturers from different track libraries.
