Re: Building a yard ladder

Scott H. Haycock

The key measurement for laying out yard tracks is center-to-center spacing. in HO this is usually 2'' on straight track. Lay it out. Most HO turnouts have to be shortened for ladders. The NMRA website will have their standards somewhere and they will have this info for OO scale.

When building a yard ladder is it acceptable to place your turnouts end to end or should there be some track in between the turnouts, if so what would the recommended track length be in OO scale?     Thank you for any suggestions.
