    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to HO model trains and would like to know how high to lift track to overpass. Also is it better to raise the inner track or the outer track

    Hi dazasolo, and welcome to The Gauge and the wonderful world of ho:wave:
    I think 3" clearance is considered minimum and if you plan on running hi cubes or auto racks you should have at least 4" clearance.
    As far as which track climbs, choose the track which has the longest distance to the top to reduce the amount of grade percentage.
