Traverser Options – OO Gauge

As I have some OO track I decided to ‘have a play’ with this gauge as well. Basically the same rules apply as when I played with O Gauge. Each track on the traverser must receive and dispatch trains.

You can get seven track on the traverser deck.


IMG_1593 I found by using one OO right hand point – I was able to achieve the in and out rule easier – This just was not practical in O Gauge !


How much will it hold? Obviously five tracks are the full 1200mm long with two slightly shorter due to the point.

The largest possible loco plus three Mk1 or Mk2 coach. Medium/small size loco plus four suburban coaches are just possible. Up to 10 small wheel wagons plus brake van.


You would probably not need to add anything extra to the scenic boards in OO and the track is easily slued to the middle of the scenic boards.

I will post a third post in the next few days with not just my conclusions but with the  thoughts of the other members of our group.
