It is 15cm.

I printed off this template from the Walthers website and made up a paper RH/TT template and glued it to a piece of cardboard so I could move it around to find the best fit.

 

 

 

 

Thanks. I'll plan for 6 inch's (15cm).

I don't know if this matters, but it will only be 3 stalls.

I am trying to plan for a roundhouse/turntable on my condo layout. I am looking at the walthers 90ft and the matching roundhouse. How much space is there between the Turntable and the roundhouse. My calculations show about a foot between, but that seems extreme. How much space should I plan for?
