072 PASSENGER CARS WITH 054 OR 060 SWITCHES

Keith Buenzow ·
Does anyone have experience running cars requiring 072 curves running through 060 or 054 switches? Im curious and thinking that the short distance of the curve in the switch may not affect the overall tracking of the longer cars. If a 072 is immediately connected after the switch, than that would compensate for it. I have the atlas CZ cars and have a video on youtube demonstrating them on 072 vs 063 on atlas track. But this is over multiple sections (3 or 4). Am i allows to link to youtube...

I would agree with that idea, but the best test is to try it out with your own equipment and look closely to see if any parts are close to binding. O72 curves aren't really that wide for the longer passenger cars for appearances sake, but I assume your question is mainly regarding tracking ability. Other factors to consider are: how long is the total curve that the train is on, how long and heavy is the train, is there a grade, how smooth is operation over the switch with a complete train...

Yes, linking to youtube videos is fine here. The linking tool is the film strip in the reply box toolbar.

I don't have experience with the Atlas CZ cars. My experience with scale length 21 inch cars from Weaver and Golden Gate Depot is that O-72 is about as small a curve that they will negotiate. The cars may not clear the switch machines even if they will track through the switch. The only way to find out is to try it. NH Joe

If you are inquiring concerning one piece of 060 or 054 in a curve most likely if the truck doesn't bind, the car will pass fine. With a wee bit more overhang of course! As Ace says, forces from load, grade, and curves in the consist may derail it.

While this may work with 0-63, 0-63 does not equal 0-54...by a long shot. There is a reason why the cars were not rated 0-54. You won't know until you try....but I wouldn't bet on it. Best of luck, though.
