Of course Neill is right. The larger the better.

To be quantitative, 40cm radius is approximately the standard radius of set track in starter sets and is definitely too low.

80cm is a good target number for mainline running, possibly 60cm where needed.

Sticking to these larger radii will give you much better running; more realistic appearance and the ability to adapt some stock for closer more realistic coupling.

Of course larger radii take up much more room, so you have to do the best you can with your space.
