      Devon,

      I bet you could shove a mack drive into this lovely...

       

      The tender is hinged at the draw bar.

      Oh man, that is one cool creature!
      The tender may be hinged at the drawbar, but I wonder whether the thing's designer was fully hinged or not.

      Playing in Google found an image of it sans tender house https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:O_and_C_Photo_01_%288072079456%29_%282%29.jpg

      That thing says "Birdwater and Raspberry" all over it; wonder whether Bruce Bates knew of it while he was with us.

      There is a prototype for (most) everything.

      Regarding curves -

       

      I can't speak to the stock Bachman couplers as I took them off, but the Spectrum version with Accucraft couplers will handle R1 (4ft Dia) S-Curves with no issue. I use mine as a local switcher in areas my other locos can't go.
