Track for Z-scale are available from different vendors, Marklin, Peco and MicroTrains(+ some more).
The distance between the running line and a siding was greater, BR settled on a minimum of ten feet as there was the likelihood of someone walking along the siding, for example a wheel tapper checking the wheels on the stock. The sketch below, scanned from a 1930's carriage and wagon builders pocket book, shows the average for England and Scotland and may be taken as a fair approximation for most mainland British standard gauge lines (a more detailed drawing, from the same source, showing the suggested details for British suburban passenger stock has been included in Appendix Three, under Loco Hauled Passenger Coaches). The loading gauge adopted as 'standard' by British Railways was based on the more common clearances on the pre nationalisation railways but at the generous end of the scale. Until the advent of the ISO rectangular container the biggest things on the railways were passenger carriages, on the GWR broad gauge lines some main line coaches were built that were about ten feet wide, at the opposite end of the scale were lines such as the SECR where coaches were typically only eight feet wide (the SECR also had their tracks closer together than most companies and as a result retained the rooftop 'birdcage' lookout for the guard long after other companies partly because there was no room at the sides for a look-out ducket).
Most British goods stock was roughly eight feet wide, possibly the widest single vehicle being the guards van with side look-outs and the BR standard van was only eight feet nine inches wide at the duckets.
The air braked stock introduced after 1971 was rather larger, the standard four wheeled open wagons and vans were about eight feet ten inches maximum width to make them a better match to the standard pallet sizes. Some loads were light but bulky, bags of charcoal, nested stacks of empty fruit baskets and loose hay to feed the horses being examples, such loads could be piled very high on an open wagon.


Hockey Skates Width hockey skates (hockey skate) an ice skate worn for playing hockey; has a short blade and a strong boot to protect the feet and ankles Ice skates are boots with blades attached to the bottom, used to propel oneself across a sheet of ice. Where additional running lines were added under BR the distance between these and the main running line was to be ten feet, although this could be reduced to nine foot where space was restricted, existing multiple track lines were not affected by this however. To refer to 'the' loading gauge is however misleading as it is only since the advent of British Railways that a national standard has been defined, and this cannot easily be applied to older lines built with smaller clearances.
As work was done on the line the clearances were increased, where possible, to conform to the national standard. Even within a single company the actual loading gauge could vary a lot, the largest passenger coaches on standard gauge lines were those built for the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway's electrified service between Liverpool and Southport which were a fraction over nine feet ten inches wide, but these were built for and confined to that route. The widest early BR era goods vehicle I know of was the 'ferry high open' (as per the Peco long wheelbase tarpaulin wagon) which was eight feet eight inches wide over the side posts.
Curtain sided air braked vans for palletised traffic then ran into problems when the load was not properly secured, if it toppled sideways it could cause the side to bulge 'out of gauge'.
Spotting a load overhanging the sides was comparatively straightforward but judging its height was more difficult.


As the floor of a standard wagon is about four feet up the upper corners of the container were wider than the curved top of the loading gauge allowed. I enjoy sharing the knowledge I acquire both in life and experiences gained by working with designers around the world. This allowed a maximum width of about nine feet six inches up to a height of about ten feet and a maximum height of about thirteen feet six inches from the top of the rails in the centre. The Loading Gauge also specified the location of couplings and buffers, buffers were set five feet nine inches apart and set three feet six inches above the top of the rail.
