Pardon my housekeeping disaster here.
Mechanism shown is from an older 0-6-0T by Mantua. Note same blind center driver.
And note that it is off the rails.
But even so, it will make the 9 inch radius curve.
Just out of sight to right are alligator clips from an ancient MRC power pack for a test drive to make sure I know what I'm talking about.
Mechanism will take down to nine just fine.
Limiting factor for a tender engine is whether drawbar length is long enough to allow clearance on such curves.
12 inch that Michael suggested is probably the better choice.
Oh, wait, you are Michael!
