      Dear Dave

      On my Avalon Brickworks layout, the 180° curve at one end is is 4½" and 6"
      at the other, SPUD's go round easily and one occasion an Agenoria 0-4-0 open
      cab Hunslet went round the smaller curve. the only reason, the loco wouldn't
      go round the other end was height of the hole in the backscene.

      Standard Peco 0-16.5 flexitrack has been used. The key trick is to start at
      the middle of the curve and work out wards and not to have any track joins
      until the radius slackens off. It may be necessary to cut some of the
      sleeper webbing on the inside rail.
