If the curves are going to be inside the scenic area, then I would use the largest radius that you can fit in, made with flexitrack and include transistion curves. This will make it look much more realistic. If they are going to be off-scene, possibly in a tunnel, then it does not matter so much. However, I would still not go below radius 3 and preferably radius 4.

Good luck with the project, Robert.

Just thought of something that I didn't put in my earlier reply. If you are putting the layout in the gaage, had you thought of going round all four sides. With fairly narrow baseboards, I think you will find that it uses no more space and possibly less. Also there is no stretching to reach the far side. You can always make some form of lifting flap to cross a doorway.
