On30 on 15" & 18" Oval- enough room?

I have HO set and want to change to On30. My track is two separate ovals with 15" and 18" radius. Is there enough room in-between the two tracks that engines and cars on each track do not hit one another?

If someone else has this question as I got no replies.

I found some On30 car sizes. It would be very close, less than 1/2". Some engines are a little wider than cars. And, such close clearance would look unnatural. So, I add 6" straight track in center of the 18" oval to create extra clearance.
