A loading gauge defines the maximum height and width for railway vehicles and their loads to ensure safe passage through bridges, tunnels and other structures. In the case of live steam operation, the Loading gauge must include clearances for passengers.

MiniRail Standard

The following Loading gauge was published by Mini-Rail Corporation in the late 1980's. The IBLS does not presently provide a Loading gauge standard.
