    Hi all:
    Looking for a web site that will give me all the clearances for N scale. I had it all 15 years ago, but have been in HO. I had to move and my HO layout had to go. Now all I can have is a small N scale. Any help with this would be great. I live 60 miles from every place and have no hobby shop around.
    Thanks Much

    NMRA standards page S-7, click here. Diagram at the top, scroll to the bottom for the N-scale sizes. Basically it's 42.1mm over the top of the rail, and 15.1mm either side of the centreline. 1 21/32" and 19/32" respectively if you're still in imperial measures...
