Is there a tender loco that will run smoothly on radius one curves please?

I have 2 tender locos, an old Farish Hall class and a Union Mills T9 both of
which run fine on Setrack 1st radius curves. Probably most 0-6-0
tender locos will be ok, not sure about those with 8 or more driving wheels.

My older Farish stuff e.g. Castle (4-6-0), 8F (2-8-0), 4F (0-6-0 tender loco) and Merchant Navy (4-6-2) will all run round 9" curves, as will my Minitrix Britannia (4-6-2) and 9F (2-10-0) and my Peco 22xx (0-6-0 tender loco).
Of my newer stuff the Farish J39, new 4F and Ivatt 2MT (2-6-0) and Standard 4MT (2-6-0) will all do the same.
