I’m playing with the idea of making a set of trains like the Brio or Thomas, at this pace I think I will end up making these for my grandkids… but anyway….

I’ve found a lot of detailed information about the tracks gauge system, and lengths, but nothing about the standard size of the wagons.
Of course the length seems to be whatever you want that wagon to be, but I guess there’s a standard maximum height and width, otherwise some wagons could get stuck in tunnels or crash with bridges.

Does anyone know about the maximun height and width for the wagons? Anyone has a tunnel or bridge to measure it? (I don’t own any yet)
