    Default 40-Foot Flatcars Wont Go Through 30-Degree Curves.

    I've built an Interurban Flatcar patterned after a Cincinnatti & Lake Erie prototype that will not go through any of XTracks 30-degree turnouts or curves in a train of two or more. The bounding boxes are bumped way back of the drawheads on all the equipment, so it isn't that. Is there some other parameter that I can edit in the wag file to allow more freedom through these tight curves? The prototypes were built to navigate the sharp tracks found in city streets, so, it's no use if this and any other traction stock 'en train' wont go through the curves.
