Thinking of doing something in either narrow or possible staying with HO in a small area of my layout...was wondering what the smallest radius is in HO scale that you can go to run some small ore cars and possible a small loco like a dockside, porter or a hustler in...any input would be helpful thanks, know how small I can go in narrow but have never tryed it in standard HO...garret

I run a small 0-4-0 and short flat cars on a test track with a 15-inch diameter.

Thank for the info, I was just curious as I am leaning toward a narrow guage more so... also I saw some where a round table article where the guy use a  4 or 8 inch plastic drain cover and a bottom to make it.. have you seen this...as I am looking for it again... believe it was on one of the forums...thanks...Garret
