Colin, I had already done a version for 1st radius, as I needed one myself, but it was bigger scale. Easy enough to change size of stone setts, and I have also started what I call a slimmed down version which only has the stones between the rails , making it easier to match up with stones outside the rails, and about 25% cheaper. As my computer was objecting to the rounded stones I was using, I have also simplified design on new ones, 4 sides to each stone, instead of 8, and you can't notice the difference. Even with my more powerful laptop, I think W10 takes a lot of the power, so I am having to look at ways of simplifying designs.
Hopefully the new loco will encourage more to build eithe roadside or dockside layouts. Talking of which, I have just completed the GER 4 door sundry van which was converted for use as a fruit traffic office van.
Thinking of ability to go round R1 curves, think the problem(if there is one) will be the rods and valve gear,as this was the problem many years ago when Replica/Bachmann introduced their B1 and V1/3 locos. The old R1 Peco curved points were superb, and very useful, but for some reason(detail purists!) there was a trend towards making R2 the minmum radius.
