Mountain Goat is an unknown quantity at this point

The gap between the rails (Gauge) is the same as 00 gauge which is 16.5mm. The gap between sleepers varies but as a rule it is wider then most. I used my thumb to be a rough guide. I chose a wider gap for two reasons. One is to enhance the narrow gauge feel and the other is to save me work cutting PCB sleepers from PCB sheets.
Yes, I think it is a good plan to have wider curves then mine with the locos you want to run. I am running mainly little 0-4-0's and will also be building a short wheelbase 0-6-0.
I only have three locos built at the moment and two need me to make some couplings for them.
