Yes, I mis-wrote. Some of the frogs have guard rails, some don’t. But none of the curved track has a guard rail on the inner rail, even though the curves are as tight as 90 feet radius.

I’ not so sure. Look at the trackage at The Harlem Transfer Company:
The majority of the curves, and the curved-frog turnouts, had 90-foot and 104-foot radii, but no guard rails on the inside rail. There may be other reasons why the HTC could get away with such absurd track radii without guard rails.
