Yoiu  may  be  expecting  a  little  too much  I am  afraid,  they  will go  round  15" rad  no problem   I have  no smaller  radius  but  I have  just  curved a  yard  of  Peco 0n30 flexible  track  to  an  approximate 12" radius  and  tried an 18" car on it..................

It  just  about went  round  but  the limiting  factor  on the bogies (trucks!) being able to  turn  enough is  the coupler  box,  if  the  box  wasnt  there  the  bogies  would  turn  through 90' no problem!!

Thanks. 18' freight car runs well when it's alone on the track.
Coupled cars don't work.
So I'm looking for Kadee #26...
