    I am moving from "N" to "O" , I plan on putting up a double main line arround a 14 by 18 room,using O-72 curves. My question is -What spacing will I need between rails on the curves and next to the wall, and along the main line runs?
    Thankyou in advance.

    NMRA also has clearances for all the scales on their standards pages:

    Scroll down the left side for links.

    Figure six inches. rail to rail, center rail I think it is.

    Buy a few sections and see how it looks, you will use them later any way
