A lot of loco for your money
« on: January 17, 2019, 10:10:47 PM »
I wasn't really sure where to post this so here goes anyway. I received an email from Rails saying their O gauge Heljan Falcons are now half price. At 349.50 that's pretty good value. However, I'm not sure what radius curves you would need as these definitely won't go round 1st radius, almost definitely not round 2nd radius but 3rd may be an option. What do you think?

I can see why, weight wise, they refer to Falcon being 115 long tons.

Phwoar, look at the overhang on that one!

3rd might be stretching things a bit.
