I'm sure this has been posted before, but I can't find it.

Since there have been a few questions about dimensions, I thought this might be useful.



(Ignore the fact N/2mm is highlighted)

No I won't ignore it... I've got an N gauge layout:lol:.

It's a good starting point. Though Great Western had a larger loading gauge, and so did Highland railways.  Originally when built to Stromeferry, the Kyle Line could take fishing boats up to something like 20ft wide.. ( The line was built for the traffic that didn't happen, so it had the clearances and  low 2ft high platforms..)
