    Hi,

    What is the clearance for a bridge or tunnel in N scale. I will put a cork trackbed and N scale flextrack and my foam sheet are 2'' , I wonder if this 2'' sheets will be high enough to clear my train?
    Thanks

    I read somewhere that for N scale you should have a minimum of 1 5/8" height to get enough clearance for trains to go under bridges and such so I would think 2" would be fine.

    2" will even give you clearance for double stacks.
