    Default Chicago Union Station approach track radius

    Tracks approaching the north platform side of CUS have a sharp 90 curve a little north of the station. Does anyone know the radius of these curves?

    Thanks,
    Barry

    Looking at G-Maps, and eyeballing it, it looks to be about 700', or 52.5" in n scale. How much room you got?

    Rather than trying to do that, I'd suggest looking at NMRA RP-11, Curvature and Rolling Stock.
