    Can anyone tell me what the best curved radius is for a Rivarossi 2-8-8-2 Mallet. I have mostly 22inch radius curves, so I hope that is good. Thanks

    You shouldn't have any trouble going around a 22 inch radius curves.

    should go through the 22r curves you might have to watch putting anything too close to track because of the overhang.

    My model RR club uses 22 inch minimums to avoid problems - words to live by I guess.
