The smallbook kits and others do run fine on these.

"With regards to the small track radius, it should be OK.
The only thing is that the overhang at the end of the loco is a little more with Katie and Pierrot than Columbine and Harlequin.
If you can make your own track, so much the better, as with flexible track the gauge narrows on bending it into a curve but if you make your own
you can increase the gauge slightly on the bends and this makes life easier for the locos and stock."
