Herb-my little Model T railcar had the same problem. It has a 2 axle lead truck and single rear driver which tended to derail to the outside of sharp curves (all there is on the MRy). The "solution" was to make the rear driver pivot slightly and that cured the problem. The driveshaft is similar to a Shay or Climax which has sliding box joints and universals. Now the supt. can inspect at will without jumping the track and racing (at 5MPH)  across the scenery.         Woodie
