Peco gauge 1 track

I have a layout with Peco gauge 1 track and would like to run a Roundhouse steam locomotive on it. But before doing this I would like to know if there would be no problems with the Peco points and also if the wheel flanges of a Roundhouse locomotive would touch the sleepers?

Any info would be helpfull

thank you

Hi Paul,

The Cardiff Model Engineering Society uses Peco G1 track on its garden railway it having the same code 200 rail that Peco Sm32 uses, other than vintage model locomotives with their deep flanges there has been no problems running any stock on it including G45. As to points I cannot help as the CMES track is dual gauge so doesn't use Peco points.

Some video of the track in operation

The club's next open day is on Sunday if anyone fancies a play.

Take care Tony.

Hello again Paul,

Sorry, I forgot to mention it is only the ground level track that uses Peco G1 track, the raised track uses Peco G45.
