What is the Spectrum 2-8-0 minimum turning radius, I have some tight corners in a sawmill area and don't want derailments

I don't know the minimum curve radius this loco will handle but I have run mine on an oval utilizing Bachmann's 11.25r EZ Track.

I don't think so. Bachmann only makes 11.25r and 19r n-scale curves.

From what I have read, though, I believe some have run the 2-8-0 on
Atlas' 9.75r track.

Sorry Dick, you are correct. It is 11.25r EZ Track.
My mistake

I've run mine on 9 3/4 radius with no problem. I've also ran mine visting the n scale railroad club in Balboa park (in San Diego) on hand laid code 40 rail and it ran great on that also. You'll have no problems running your consolidation on 9 3/4 radius since the locomotive has a short frame and tender and will not bind going into that size of a curve.
