Since I'm new to Lightwave (7.5 on a G4Mac) I hope someone can help me with a modeling problem I'm having. I have need to construct an animation of a train running on a track. Train and straight track are built but I'm having trouble trying to construct curved sections of track. Ideally what I'd like to be able to do is build a library of track sections (45's 90, spurs, etc.) in which I can change both radius and degrees of section to fit my needs. I've tried "bending" straight section to the proper arc or trying to construct pairs of curved rails from curves but just don't seem to be able to come up with the right methodology.

Can someone please help and maybe point me in the right direction?

Thanks
