Despite leaning towards doing a non-auto related industry for my first layout, autoracks and extended length boxcars still parade by my house almost every day. The reason for not using them is simply that they do not perform well on tight radius turns, and they do not look good on anything tighter than about 18" radius turns. I've also seen that they even look funny when going over peco medium radius turnouts (thanks SD90!)... It means they use more space, realistically than I have. More recently, however, the parade of autoracks has started to include the articulated autorack cars. Atlas now produces these, and I was wondering if anyone is making use of them or can share their thoughts as to how well they perform in tighter spaces. One possibility that has recently come up is that I may be moving into a larger space than what I currently have... which could solve the above problem. However... I would still appreciate input and advice!
