Posted this many times, but here's one of my Big Boys on 70" radius (0-140, in 3R langauge).  Even here, the overhang is more than expected, 108 or less won't be much improvement over 0-72 in my opinion.  I can't imagine running one of these on anything less than 65" radius (0-130) but that's just me...

It looks much better than a 4-12-2 rigid frame on the same curve, however.  It's another one that looks ridiculous on 0-72.     

Whatever you decide, enjoy your Big Boy, it's a great locomotive.

 

why do you still have the packing material in the loco?
