curve radius for passenger trains

Any suggestions as to the minimum curve radius I should be planning on using for n scale passenger trains? I reallly want to keep it looking realistic as possible in those curves. Thanks for any thoughts on this.:)

In N scale you should have more space (theoretically) for larger radius curves. What I would do it take some flex track, join a couple pieces together, tack it down on a temp board, and do some experimentation with your cars. That way you can get a good idea of exactly what is going to happen, and you can adjust to remove any 'overhang' as much as possible.

What sort of dimensions is your layout? Do you have a track plan?
