Track dimensions

Do N gauge tracks from different manufacturers have the same actual distance between the rails, i.e. would Graham Farish locos and rolling stock run smoothly on Fleischmann Piccolo track. Thanks.

The distance between the rails is the same but the rail height may be different. I only say may be, as I do OO gauge. I am not used to N. I have used N gauge years ago but only for one layout. I used Peco track then and I would recommend Peco now. Best to keep to one to be on the safe side.

They'll run. I have used in my time Peco code 80, Fleischmann and Kato track. I run Graham Farish-Poole, Graham Farish-modern, Minitrix, Fleischmann, Arnold, Dapol, Union Mills, Kato, Tomix Union Mills and other makes of locomotives and stock and find that very occasionally I need to adjust the back to back measurement on an axle in order to ensure trouble-free running.
