You then have to allow the depth of the bridge to get the distance required for trains to climb.
I wonder if one track can drop in height to limit the climb of the other.To answer this point, yes it can. While I am keen to keep this as a modern era layout, I'm more thinking about Diesel but hmmmm depends on the future proofing. The bill, signed by President Barack Obama on July 6, 2012, is the first in 27 months that provides long-term transportation funding.
Through July, about six miles of track had already been finished for the project, which targets a 2014 completion date. Since 2009, government funding for public transportation had been on life support with one temporary extension after another. The Irving build-out received $61.2 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 funds because of its employment impact and ability to attract additional development, companies, employees and residents to Irving, the agency says. Expansion includes three miles on the East End Green Line, five miles on the North Red Line and six miles on the Southeast Purple Line.

You will be At the risk of sounding narcissistic, some of the pictures in my layout thread might explain better than I can in words.
I posted my haulage findings after extensive testing of trains on a 1:35 gradient to get over a 40mm high bridge crossing another line.
45mm would therefore seem about right for the minimum height gain required to cross over another line, dependant on the bridge thickness of course.
45mm would therefore seem about right for the minimum height gain required to cross over another line, dependant on the bridge thickness of course.REALLY useful links there.
THE QUESTION.What is the minimum height distance including clearance for one train to pass over the other??
