I am running the loco (It's a new Mallard, DCC ready) with no rolling stock on it. The sontroller is ancient, so that maybe the problem.

Just a thought...

To get locos around curves, I presume that there must be some sideways play in the coupled wheels with the centre wheel outside the front and back wheels so that they align to the curve. So it may be worth checking the sideways play on this particular loco and compare with others - is it free to move?
I personally haven't noticed this but do use a feedback DC controller.
