### Is there a Mathematical Formula for Widening Gauge on Tight Curves ?

**Mon Apr 30, 2018 3:08 am**Is there a Mathematical Formula for Widening Gauge on Tight Curves... or at least some way of rough figuring how much to widen the gauge on a tight curve ?

I have an LGB 20140 Feldbahn Loco that I'm in the process of upscaling to 7/8ths. It will be 45mm track, and the wheelbase of the 20140 is about 45mm. I want to build a small layout that can easily be transported in the seat of a smaller Car. I want to use it to attract more new people to the hobby, and to Show people that large scale can be done indoors, even with a small amount of space

Thanks !
