Today I bought some Kato to make a siding, two turnouts (20-220 and 20-221) and some straight track (20-010). The track pieces were as specified on the katouk.com web page. when I connect them together the track needs to be bent slightly for them to fit. As shown in the picture, if the straight portion of the track is held against a straight edge, gaps appear on the turn out connections. If I let the curved portion of the track take its natural shape, the straight portion of the track bends. This should not happen. It seems to me that Kato track, the first I have ever purchased, is not well made.
