Looking to add a new Diesel locomotive and looking at a Union Pacific GP30 Diesel from here http://www.wholesaletrains.com/Detail.asp?ID=5124&gclid=CKuUg4jKjbsCFcY1Qgodow8AZg

It says I need a minium of 5 foot curve and one of the curves on my track is a 4 ft 6 inch diameter. Am I pushing it or do you think I will be okay? Also is this a decent locomotive? Really with I could run the bigger Union Pacific SD70MAC But I don't think I could get away with that in my one corner.
Thanks for any input.
