  • Car Capacity

    A few years ago, I saw a formula to inform us of how many cars we have on a layout and how many we should have.

    I have contacted NMRA to get some input from them, and they would like to see the formula themselves.

    Here is a list of the headings that was in this formula:

    Total Car Capacity

    % of Total Capacity

    Capacity by Type

    Suggested # of Cars (70%)

    Actual # of Cars on Hand

    Cars Needed

    If anyone has seen this article, which came off the web, I would appreciate having a link or a copy sent to me at:

    fmadams@videotron.ca

    Thanks in advance for any assistance
