The use of 'Standard Gauge' (4 foot 81/2 inches or 1435 mm) track is proposed for Bath.

The difference between this and the nearest alternative, 'Metre Gauge', is of little significance in practical terms; but Bristol is obliged to use standard gauge and it would be foolish to preclude future interchange of vehicles or through-services by using a different gauge.
