Reply to "LC+ 2.0 big boy overhang o31"

Another consideration to keep in mind is the distance between parallel tracks 'at curves' - particularly on small layouts like mine - to avoid 'side swiping'.  I have two ovals - the outer is 042 and the inner is 031 - and whenever running two trains I prefer to run them in opposite directions.  I'll always run my largest engines (eg. LM Big Boy, LM Challenger or LM Cab Forward) on the outer oval, but I have experienced (fortunately at slow speeds) that when running some Lionel 'standard 0' boxcars etc, sometimes - depending on the swing of the engine cab on the other track - there'll be some scraping of the two.  Hence, my general rule of thumb is  to initially run the trains very slowly - before speeding them up. 😱 😧
