No this does not include any AZL products prior to 2008. Starting last
year, AZL new releases moved away from their tradition wheel width to a new
width to accommodate the MTL turnouts. AZL has no plans to change any wheel
widths on their existing inventory.
Also note, steam locos have rigid frames and are less forgiving of tight
turnouts, especially on the curved portion. I can completely understand how
Reynard may have difficulties with his GS4 going through MTL turnouts. there
are quite a lot of wheels on a rigid frame moving through very tight quarters
on the MTL turnouts. Having some play between the rail guards and the rail
does make a huge difference. Even if the gauging is right on, it still may
not completely solve the issue of a large rigid frame loco running through
these turnouts. We will know more once the Challenger hits the market later
