If you need to accomodate 1:20.3 scale equipment, the widest loco we have found so far is spec'd at 6.44 inches - an Accucraft steamer

I was going to say the same thing. The big D&RGW locos, like the K-36/37, are very wide. If you expect to have 2 of them passing each other (especially on curves) you need to space the track at 7.5" or 8".
