    Does anyone know the minimum radius for curve on S guage? I just bought some of the Gargraves Flex track and need to know how tight I can turn it.

    Thanks,

    Welcome to TrainBoard!

    It's been many long years, but my memory says the minimum radius of the old AF tinplate track, was 19 inches.

    I'd suggest you lay out some chalked radius lines, and carefully test bend a couple of sections. See how they look. And if your equipment negotiates them as needed.

    :D
