You should be using the wider gauge for set track radius curves. The locos should be OK but the carriages might foul each other.

It's the same gauge. The two closer lugs give adequate spacing for "streamline" and wider radius curves. The two wider lugs give adequate spacing down to 9" radius curves.

Thanks Graham Iíll check all the curves using the wider lugs, and Iíll use the narrower pair for straights runs.

Darren just caught up with this, that over roof will look fantastic and is presumably a very very good copy if Kings cross.

Have you got it yet??? Be great to see that coming together!!!!
