as a person who has trouble quartering a 0-4-0 i can say that is impressive

The simplest way to quarter wheels is a pair at a time so whether it's an 0-4-0 or a 2-10-0 it's simply a series of 0-4-0s.

Out of interest, what minimum radius will the loco go round? Have you had to take any special measures to allow for side-play on such a long loco? I believe the real things were notorious for spreading the track in sidings; that probably says more about the track than the engine.

Hi Steve the radius for the layout is 3ft 6ins there are also Q6 and 9fs destined for Brick bridge so hopefully everything will be well
