Kato Unitrack is a highly durable snap together trackage system that may be clipped together for a running session or more permanently mounted on a layout. We keep large stocks of Kato N Unitrack - we try to only show items that we have, in stock, on our website. Hey everyone, I have some Atlas code 83 switches on my layout that I have electric Atlas switch machines for but I haven't wired them up yet. If you are using the Atlas turnout motors I strongly suggest you use a capacitor discharge circuit, because if you don't, holding the switch too long will burn out motors.
The CD circuits look like they would work well for me and would save a bunch of space on my control panel, plus I now know where I could store a power pack to power them. 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.
As with all small layouts, it is advisable to introduce some kind of a scenic divider, in form of a backdrop or taller buildings, which divides the layout into two different scenes - makes it look larger.


Another thing to think about: make sure you have at least an inch underneath the layout for wiring. Sorry to bump an old post but I wanted to ask if anyone can help me find the link to PDF for this layout. That's a nice little trackplan, CW - very compact and looks like it can accomodate up to three trains and run one at the time.
The track is ballasted and all of the points are fitted with discrete motors within the ballast. Circuitron's Snapper is a good unit or there are plans out there to build your own with easily available parts.
It was one liek this that I actually built even though it was probably overkill for my N scale layout with a grand total of 6 turnouts on it. I found some telephone wire that has four different wires, so I'll use that and just leave the fourth wire unused. 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. It looks like a mess, the transistor is on a heat sink and the rest of the parts just hang off it, but it worked, and as far as I know still works although it's been stored away for 30 years now.
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 Red, Green and Black wires match the colors the manufacturers use and the Yellow will be a spare. I've heard some people use regular old adapters one would use for powering things like air mattress pumps, guitar effect pedals, some DCC systems, etc. 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. I would usually want some sort of scenic block, but this design is so compact a backdrop might be a distraction.
Perhaps the relocated mountain would provide at least a feeling of separation between the two scenes. If the colors don;t exactly match the 3 colors Atlas uses, come up with a system and stick with it. The telephone wire is good for any length of run you will need especially if you use a CD unit.
