Sound Value is not a decoder but a family of sound decoders.  N scale is first to have Econami Sound Value equipped steam and diesel locomotives

Well if it's all 100, why bother with an entry in the chart?

Not all brands of HO track is Code 100.

The Track Code 100 info is for those who do not know or not sure and as Terry understands need only occur once in chart header.

I modified my chart to include the "number of degrees in a circle". I should have done that when I made it. Thanks Hunt for giving me the idea.

Terry some trivia -
I (and likely others) suggested to Bachmann's H. Lee Riley almost two decades ago to mark all curved track pieces with its curve radius and arc.   



Suggest you add track code info to your HO track chart.  As you know,  all Bachmann HO is  Track Code 100

E-Z Curved Track – Underside of track  -embossed on the end after second line of PATENT NO are the curve radius and arc.  Not all same size curved track has this info. Surmise it depends on when it was manufactured.

 Example:
On one end 92124A8-1 (info after letter A varies) , oppose end 18"R-30o
This is HO 18" Radius Curved Track, 12 pieces make a circle. (12 x 30o = 360o)

This is sold as Item No./Model:  44501 - 18" Radius Curved (HO Scale, Nickel silver track with gray roadbed; 4/card

Note - Bachmann products are Item No. in print catalog and Model in their ONLINE/ WEB STORE




Ask Bachmann Service Dept multiple times over several years about the number embossed on underside of curved track - everytime  question stonewalled.

Harold,
Read the decoder -
CV 50, F0(r) Hyperlight Auto-Dim Forward  ---  Verify CV50 factory default value is 144 (not 143 listed in document the factory-installed decoder document).
10  Discussion Boards / N / Re: NEW Bachmann N-Scale Sound Equipped 2-8-0 on: June 20, 2018, 03:40:50 PM
Click Here for the factory-installed decoder document.

This document content is different from the original factory-installed decoder Sound Value documents as it servers a different purpose, thus it is used differently.

This post has everything you want to know about numbered turnouts...

http://cs.trains.com/mrr/f/11/t/262912.aspx

infamouselijah, Did you find answer to your question, "Which turnout would go with a 22' radius curve?"

. . .

 Now I can separate the tender from the loco without worrying about breaking something.


Worry if you grip wires to disconnect tender from locomotive as doing so may pull  one or more wires from the connector.
