Hello Howard,

Just a question:- are you sure that 50mm track centre spacing is adequate on curves of only 24" radius?I am hoping so.The double track section in the loft is peco code100 and has been in use as it is previously. Having said that, I am unsure if I had both directions passing at the same time. I am keeping everything crossed. I don't recall any collision issues but I may just have been lucky. :D

Not sure what era Trevor is modelling but it does sound like the kind of place where Duchesses might be passing 70' 12-wheel diners at a closing speed of about 140MPH!I will be running some of Staniers finest and 12-wheel diners(Early BR). I may need speed limits on the stretch I am building though. I haven't run two diners in opposite directions at the same time now you mention it. :shock:


The problem we saw was much more humble - an M7 running bunker first passing a Mk1 - they clear but not by much!I do have a 0-4-4t Stanier 2P which may present the same issue though.

Regards.
Trevor.
