    Hi Garth, Yes, it is almost impossible for most locos to negotiate poor trackwork. Especially real trains, no argument there. And it is impossible for a train

      Hi Garth,
      Yes, it is almost impossible for most locos to negotiate
      poor trackwork. Especially real trains, no argument there.

      And it is impossible for a train to negotiate a 50 MPH
      curved track area while going 100 MPH. Tragically
      examples abound...

      peace,

      Reynard

If you have problems with this engines pilot wheel coming off the track then look to your track work not the engine.
