What is L-Gauge?

L-Gauge is an unofficial term used to describe the hobby of LEGO® System trains which use the common track gauge of 37.5 mm or 40 mm centre-line gauge (5 studs). The L-Gauge standard is described at l-gauge.org. This community site defines the fundamental characteristics, specifications, and geometry of key items such as the track, wheels, couplers, loading gauge, etc. of LEGO® System trains. The standard is not official nor binding to any organization or individual.

See the chart below to see how L-Gauge compares to other popular model train scales:

Get Started Designing Your Dream Layout!

Design your next layout with BlueBrick (by Alban Nanty); an excellent open source software tool for designing LEGO® based layouts. You can arrange baseplates, track, and other items into any desired layout configuration. Assign different drawing layers for each item, generate parts lists, add text annotations, and much more. BlueBrick comes pre-installed with many different parts libraries, including LEGO® track from the 4.5V era up to current 9V/RC track. Fx Track is represented in the Schematic track libraries available for download from l-gauge.org or directly from the links below.
