Curve radius relationship to wheelbase

Is there a formula whereby it is possible to calculate the minimum radii a known wheelbase locomotive or bogie, front to rear axle/s; does the diameter of the wheel have any effect on the calculation?
Thanks

Oz, basically yes there is a formula, though usually worked the other way round (it does not require wheel dia), I would refer you to the Miscalanious section of the forum, under "Maximum fixed wheelbase for 7 1/4"" You may be able to find out more from there.
