Question Peco SL-500 & SL-100

Hello,
It's question about Peco SL-500 and SL-100 track:
They are all "code 100" but is it exactly the same rail and the same gauge: 16.5mm ? Can I connect them together without any issue ?
Many thanks for your help.

It's OO/HO scale track for modelling narrow gauge in O scale. So O scale narrow gauge loco on OO/HO track. It is code 100 so should join SL-100 OK, I think.

It's the sleeper pattern that is different.

Thanks gentlemen. You can run H0, 00, 0n30 and Gn15 trains on this track.

I think you have exciting plans Beynac. The 16.5 gauge will indeed be used for 00, H0, 0-16.5, 0n30 and 0e. Is only the sleepers are different between the two.
As 00 gauge track is usually slightly cheaper then 0-16.5 track, many people will mix the two so they use 00 gauge track for non scenic storage sidings and the 0-16.5 track for the scenic sections.
