Default RE: Minimum radius for Bachmann Shay

You're right - it has been posted before - and not long ago. I tried to find it so I could send you that way, but I can't locate it. I'm sure someone else will find it!

In the meantime - I run mine on R1 (2 ft radius) curves and it looks OK to me. I wouldn't go less than that because some of the gearing may disconnect.

Here's a video of mine on an R1 curve: Bachmann Two-Truck Shay

That's awesome audio on the Shay. I just bought one and have non sound decoder ready to install, but wait.... now I want that sound.
