This afternoon after work I installed the Peco #8 RH turnout for the yard lead to the new five track staging yard.
I have six feet of flex track (26"r) around the outer 24" curve of my layout and is now getting to the yard ladder.
Without a lot of remedial geometry, what length of straight section do I need between #6 Peco Insulfrog turnouts to get a 2.75" center-to-center track spacing?
How about a 3" spacing?
There will be platforms installed between tracks, hence the wider than mainline spacing.
I forgot that the Peco turnouts have very short legs and right now with all of the turnouts joined end to end I get about a 1 inch spacing. Not going to work.
Any help appreciated.
