      Does it de-rail on both left-hand and right-hand turnouts?  If not, check the centering of the pickup roller assembly.  It can be as much as 2 degrees off center either way, and may be coming in contact with the center rail in a mis-aligned fashion.  This will cause a derailment.  If it de-rails on both left and right turnouts, check the spring between the top of the truck and the frame.  If it is missing, the truck will not pivot smoothly, and could cause derailment,  Good luck!
