Does the T-1 turn

    I need some information! It seems that I remember reading that the Broadway limited PRR T-1 was articulated ( even thought the prototype was a straight frame) to allow a bit more flexiblity in use on a tight turn on an HO layout for people like me who didn't plan ahead so well.. Purists were offended, but it probably helped sales. Does anyone own one? Are the two sets of drivers able to swing a bit? Thanks, Dave.

    I think the BLI model has a rigid frame (no articulation). From the photos, it looks like the two middle driver wheels are blind (no flanges). I think that's how it's able to get around 22" radius curves (that's what BLI says it can negotiate at the minimum).

    Hope this helps.
