I seen on youtube where bachmann was at the fall 2012 tca and was telling people that bacmann was working on brass turnouts and they would be coming later. My I say someone needs to make a 5 foot (2.5 foot radius) turnout! It goes from 4 foot (2 foot radius) to 8 foot (4 foot radius).. I know people want larger turnouts and I also for outdoor layouts, But for those indoor layouts where you don't have room for 8 foot curves and 4 foot seems to small, 5 foot curves are the way to go, but no turnouts are made in that size! Please think about it bachmann and can't wait to see your turnouts in brass!!!

I am glad to hear this.  One thing is that 8ft diameter (4ft radius) is your largest?  That is the bare minimum recommendation for most of the Sprectrum locomotives and cars.  I would hope that perhaps a bit larger might be considered as well.

Anyway, like the video from TCA and glad to see that you tried to make the ties and look a little more narrow guage.
