Thank you for your reply. Perhaps I did not phrase my question correctly. I was looking for the smallest curvature that the RDCs could navigate alone or coupled to another RDC without derailing.

the smalles switch these days is a no 4 I believe and the RDC's had no problems with these coupled or not.
as far as max curvature, nothing in writing I belive but Danbury loop track makes a full 197 degree turn in 850 feet if that helps
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???

Thank you for the info. Mapquest shows a loop in Danbury, CT, near Patriot Drive and Pahqulogue Avenue. Looks like radius of most curved portion is about 300 ft or about 41 inches in HO scale.
