I mentioned this once and will again...The MP&MWRR had some tight curves (and grades). There was a 70' radius-SEVENTY FEET- which handled 65 ton standard gauge Shays and 40 foot tourist cars. In 1:48 (O scale) that is 17"-SEVENTEEN INCH RADIUS. Now, what is all that about "curves too small" jabber we hear?
BTW-they also used an old San Francisco cable car on standard gauge trucks as a "passenger" car.
Now...where are those nitpickers?

Hi Steven B.
Your story about the railroad & you was wonderful.
I did read it before the server-crash.
The last page of this thread had to be removed sadly...
...since it was returning error messages.
This thread is viewable & linkable to as normal.
No NEW posts can be added though.
