H guys,

I'm just in the planning stages of a layout featuring some ex-interurban trackage down a main high street. I want that look of the tight interurban curves but without it looking too silly. Plus I'd still like to keep to using body mounted Kadees if possible. I'm hoping to use four axel power, eg. GP9, and modern 50' approx cars like the aristo evans to get a 90's shortline feel. What radius of curves would you guys recommend for this? It's an indoor club layout so was possibly even thinking of hand laying some of it. Thanks for any help!

all the best,
Gavin

Thanks for the info Jim, thats great


I was thinking of about a 9ft radius, still sharp enough to look like the prototype, but smooth enough for the body mounted kadees.

Thanks again,
Gavin
