I suspect that in the end the final "fine tuning" of the radius as measured really does not make an impact, in fact if it does I can tell you now that your radius is too small! But to your question, the measurement is to the center of the two rails on a paticular section of track. If you have one segment of track going west and the return track going east, measure the distance between the two segments of track and divide by 2.
Using the calculations from Turnouts a standard #6 true to scale turnout would be about 36a€? long while a typical sectional track turnout would be about 14a€? due to the sharper radius. Some G railway modelers hand lay their track and fabricate their own turnouts from scratch rather than use sectional track components.

I've always used the centerline, most of the track planning software, and manufacturer's diagrams seem to do this also. Question from a novice : I have laid out all of the straight stretches in my garden so that I have the largest radius possible when I change direction. As an example we will use the layout designed for HO gauge from Track Planning and adapt it to G scale standard gauge (1:32).
Grades are calculated the same way regardless of scale- a 1% grade=1a€? rise in 100a€? of track length.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. The problem occurs when someone says they have 4 ft diameter curves when they actually have 4 ft radius curves or vise versus.
The procedure for any track design is to make a scale drawing of a selected track plan to meet the min.
Once the track area is defined as above it is then time to make certain that additional space is added to accommodate scenery features. In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois).


If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. This item will be sent through the Global Shipping Programme and includes international tracking. Real scale turnouts are available from some suppliers but the layout builder should be aware of the differences and design his track plan accordingly.
Because I was a tool and die maker, I always measure as radius to the CENTER of the track section between the two rails. Pound the stake in where you think the center of your curve might, then measure the distance to the nearest straight piece of track. A suggested minimum radius for scale modelers would be: Narrow gauge 60a€?, Standard gauge-72a€?. As mentioned the turnout radii for most of the manufacturers are extremely sharp and look very much unlike the prototype.
