Derailment problem with Bachmann Manor Tender

I have a Bachmann Frilsham Manor loco that I bought last year. It's in new condition and runs well except for a derailment problem that I'm having with its tender. It derails at my Peco curved points, on the inner-most curve. It could very well be how I've laid the track that's causing the problem, but I'm still 'suspicious' (that the tender could be at fault) because nothing else derails at these points. And I've tried weighting down the tender but the problem still happens. The tender of my Collett 0-6-0 is almost identical to the FM's tender, yet it goes through these points no problem. Has anyone else had problems with Bachman GWR/Manor tenders or could offer any advice?

 Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
