I recently downloaded a great spreadsheet that someone  prepared on the minimum radius of ON30 engines.
Can anyone provide a rough guess from experience on the capabilities of Bachmann engines with typical Bachmann cars?
For example, what is your experience with a Bachmann Climax, Shay, 2-8-0 etc with typical Bachmann cars (dump cars, log cars etc) on various grades with various curves. For example, what can a Bachmann Climax pull on a 5% or 10% grade on an 18 inch or 22 inch curve??
I have a small fleet of the little guys and I am just wondering what kind of layout would be possible?? What would you avoid based on your experience ?with regard to engine/cars/grades/curves?
Thanks for your thoughts and thanks to Bachmann for their wonderful stuff.
