HO and On30 use the same spacing between the rails and have the same power requirements.  So both scales will run on track made for the other.

So you're asking if an HO 2-8-0 will run on 18" radius curves, right?


Bachman's Baldwin 2-8-0 models will work on them, is this the model you're asking about?
