I'm pretty sure the 666 and 333 locomotives will negotiate that switch. The older (?) 999 locomotives with the single reduction gearing will not due to the driver being too deep. Your mileage may vary.

Here's what Jim is talking about:


Marx single reduction motors (left) have larger driver gears and tend to foul on Lionel switches and crossings.  Marx double reduction motors (right) have smaller driver gears and are less likely to foul on the switches and crossings.

Hope this helps!
