Trying to add to my knowledge base.  These three seem to all nominally be 1:29 in my reading.  Would the three mix well?  I am mostly concerned about Piko mixing with the other two.  Anyone actually have hands or eyes on any of the two at the same time?

As an aside, would 1:32 stuff mix in with 1:29 stuff OK? I.e. Accucraft, Marklin and MTH Railking - although I am not sure I could ever bring myself to spring for any of these.

And is there a general minimum curve radius I would need to adhere to for these brands in this scale (let's say small locos - steam and early diesel/gas switchers)?  is 4 ft. good?  or will it really be model specific?

Thx!
