This is a custom designed curved track with a radius of R32 (32 Lego dots).
This track sits between R24 and R40 without leaving any gaps if placed next to each other.
This part enables creating very tight layouts (needs just 58 cm for a full u-turn). It is compatible with all Lego trains unlike the R24 which is too tight for some. Perfect for Xmas trains!
It was designed taking into account all the Lego parametric requirements which makes the part fully compatible with original Lego.
You need 16 pieces to create a full circle layout.

The R32 is the radius measured from the center of the circle to the centerline between the rails using the Lego stud as the unit. Lego stud is 8mm. The space needed to have the full R32 circle can be calculated as follows: (32 + 4) * 2 * 8mm = 576mm ~= 0.58m. This measures the diameter (2 * radius) of the outer shape of the track - that's why we added 4 studs in the formula.
In general, the formula for calculating the outer diameter of the track circle is:
(R + 4) * 2 * 8mm
