Has any one experience of the #4.5 turnout. Is it to ask for trouble to use this in a hidden stage yard insted of using #6 turnout to save space ?

Hi,

Any equipment that can negotiate a 20" radius will operate fine on #4.5 turnouts. I would avoid using a #4 as these have a very tight 15" radius in them. This is the main reason we added #4.5's to the line, they are only slightly larger than the #4 but are much more reliable.
