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!

See y'all later, Forrest.
Screw the rivets, I'm building for atmosphere
