Howdy Robert, a great plan! If I may add this...the Gilpin's minimum radius was 50' and 65' (of course there were other curves) but you might see what you could "get away with" by using 12.5" (50') and 15.75" (65') minimum radius. I don't know if a "stock"On2 brass Shay would curve that little but with some "fixin' and fiddlin', one could surely make it! The 22" is very, very generous for the railway but the C&S 3 footer might need 36" or so if using "stock" brass On3 locos. I hope you get going on this, I will be watching as well as many more.
Have fun and run a train today!
