Rog, think its worth a punt. I bought a full box of flexi on ebay, for a song. Might be worth a look.

They did say that it very much depends on the production of rolling stock. I got the impression from them that it could go tighter but they clearly wanted to avoid the “a spokesman said” backlash. R-
How much space do you have? Usual way of making locos to go round sharp curves is to file off the flanges of six (Or more) coupled locos and to keep to short wheelbase locos and stock, though bogie vehicles can be made to turn sharp curves but the overhang becomes noticable so short wheelbase fixed stock is preferred. No doubt you know all this. The only other restriction are the couplings as some designs have their limitations.

TT however is a lovely scale. A tad small for my liking but many did find it ideal! True table top railway potential with TT.

84”x30” max.

I think it might a little bit of a challenge with my eyesight, at least until I go bionic!

TT 120 is a wonderful gauge , plus , using the new Peco 120 track , it is the correct scale , the only thing that lets it down is the lack or rolling stock , there is a class 31 in the offing , and a possible Class 66 , I hope that British rolling stock will appear soon, even a 16t mineral wagon would be a welcome addition

Just had an email from Golden Hobbies as I've bought from them in the past. They were highlighting the large stock of TT stuff that they stock. It's mostly European style but some might be of interest so I put a link here:
