How to Properly Measure Track Gauge

As part of our commitment to education and safety, we are providing free access to this information. Here’s how to properly measure track gauge for Class 1 (Industrial) track:

  • Position the Tape Measure: Place the tape measure between the rails, ensuring it is perpendicular to them.
  • Measure the Gauge: Take the measurement 5/8” from the top of the rail, from the inside edge of one rail to the inside edge of the opposite rail. 
  • For Class 1 (Industrial) track, the standard gauge should be 56 1/2 inches. Ensure the measurement is not less than 56 inches and does not exceed 58 inches.
  • If your measurement falls within the range of 56 to 58 inches, it meets the standard for Class 1(Industrial) track.
  • Check for Accuracy: If in doubt, compare your measurement with a standard track gauge tool or ask for assistance from a professional track inspector. 

    By following these steps, you can accurately measure track gauge and ensure compliance with Class 1 (Industrial) track standards.
