Track layout Geometry

Recommended Posts


Recently I came across this great website of Bill Ward:

Link to train layout geometry part of the website of Bill Ward

In his website he advices to design your layout with a standard pitch of 16 studs.

or 8 studs between tracks.

However, fiddeling around in a track designer layout design tool I found a way to change the pitch.

The new pitch is now 14 studs, so the distance between the tracks is now 6 studs.

Ofcourse, with the new flex track pieces changing the pitch will be easy.

But, the one I drawed can be build from standard tracks.

Here is a picture:


Allowing the pitch to vary, allows for some variation in the railway station platforms.

i.e. making them wider or smaller to fit the station instead of having a standard width.

Does anybody else have a different way to change the pitch of the tracks?

Kind regards,
