Did anyone use Kato R150 curved track for a very small G9 layout ?
Thanks for your replies.

I'm working on one (slowly) with their oval and some tram turnouts. Very high quality stuff. The 6 inch radius works fine with most 4-6 wheel power units and N gauge chassis.

Yes I have a 103 and a 104 and they both work fine. Weight helps the smoothness. I use radio and a battery as weight.

don't forget the tomix tracksystem. Smaller radius than the JKato, and they do sleepered and inset. Tomix inset track
sleepered track set
