minimum radius

Rate this question



Hello all,


another dopey question, I am afraid!


I am putting a siding into my layout. I want it to curve away from the mainline. I have plenty of spare Hornby 605 curves so was going to use one of those.


The siding will be a timber siding for an 071 to collect wagons.


However - I don't have an 071 yet.


My question is - will an 071 manage the Hornby 605 radius or is that too tight? I know some uk locos wont.

No such thing a a dopey question if you don't know the answer! An 071 will go around a Hornby radius 1 but it is very tight, a 201 won't. 605 is radius 1, 371mm radius. If you use flex track you could increase the radius a bit. Hope this helps.
