Swiss track sleeper spacing - help needed

Recommended Posts

Evening all,


I’m about to start designing a small Swiss layout on templot and was wondering if anyone knew the prototypical sleeper spacing for Swiss SBB standard gauge track.


The layout will eventually be built in N gauge with hand made track but really want the sleeper spacing to look as close as possible.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Beat regards,

I've gone on Google maps, found a few of places where the image is clear enough and measured off a 50 metre length of track. I then counted the number of sleepers and every time came up with 83, which as near as dammit is 60 cm spacing. This works out at 3.75 mm in N gauge (1:160)
