Quote from: MAD on March 26, 2011, 08:38:20 PMThank you Mr Harrison I think my question should be along the lines of how wide is the standard flatcar width, as opposed to the gauge I am confident that main battle tanks width is predominantly governed by the width of a railway flatcar? Can anyone elaborate on this? For this might give me a better idea of the widths we are talking Thanks again mateM.A.D

Quote from: PR19_Kit on March 27, 2011, 12:47:35 AMLike the idea, but you may need outriggers to support the outboard jockey wheels.
QuoteThe main determinants are:Loading width (of the flats)Loading gauge (how close do trains pass by one another)Axle bearing (how much weight is distributed across how many axles, plus the diameter of the wheels)Track bed bearing (how much weight the track bed can sustain for prolonged periods of traffic).Tunnel width and height.
