    Aristo-Craft Six Axle derailing issues
    More about flange removal.  There are many examples of Flange less drivers known as Blind Drivers on old steam engines.  They were necessary on mountain railroads with tight radius curves. Many narrow gauge Locos had them as well.  They cou...  more
    Aristo-Craft Six Axle derailing issues
    well, curvature should not be an issue.
     
    Now, due to the pivoting gearboxes, Aristo actually does quite well with crosslevel, so my best guess is abrupt grade transitions. There's also an outside chance of narrow gauge,  but pretty rare.

    And no, I didn't follow those builds. Double decker, fluted, stainless steel passenger cars don't really fit into my pre 1915, narrow gauge theme.

    But, aren't the parts for a narrow gauge turnout the same, I mean, as long as the rails weight is the same. A number 6 frog is a number 6 frog, it doesn't know if the stock rail is 56 1/2 inches away, or 42 inches away.
