How long is a LEGO straight track?

The basics of LEGO track geometry

A straight piece (16 studs in length) A curve piece: a single curve is 22.5°; 4 of these complete a 90° curve section. The smallest 180° curve achievable requires the width of 3 baseplates (so, almost 96 studs, excluding the 4 studs allowed either side of the track).
