Default RE: Minimum Radius for Locomotives

Despite reviews elsewhere to the contrary, I've been running my Forney on 18" radius curves (sectional track) without any operational or coupler problems.

Default RE: Minimum Radius for Locomotives

I've been working on ideas for a Gn15 layout... and the Bman On30 Davenport will easily run down to 6' radius and stay coupled to short 4-5" cars. I plan to keep my track at about 8" radius. I also plan to use a similar sized Porter and my big loco will be a Bman On30 Forney with the butt removed at the cab - making it a 2-4-0. I'll then add a shorty tender. In tests it will also run on 8" radius track. Gary
