I'm getting burned on on building turnouts, so, I think I am going to switch gears and scenic the Rock River crossing between Franklin Grove and Nelson on the UPRR Geneva Sub. For the bridge crossing I was planning to use the Atlas code 55 double track through plate girder bridge kit and the Kato double track truss bridge. Does anyone know what the track separations are on these two bridges? Do they match up and if not, can they be easily adjusted to work together. Or, are there any other bridges out there that might work for this application??

Thanks

Daryl

Can't speak for the Kato bridges, but the Atlas C55 bridges are built on 1.25" centers.

I just measured a Kato double tracks bridge ( see picture below ) and it's very close to 1 1/4" , after checking on the back of a Unitrack package they say 33 mm. which is 1.299"
