Various formulae have been compiled for the design of "ladder tracks" for sidings, and those the author has seen so far have entailed the use of leads with special lengths for the stock rails and/or crossing rails. In the author's opinion, groups of sidings should be designed so as to reduce to the lowest the number of curves. The adoption of proposed formulae will eliminate reverse curves and so make a reduction of almost 50 percent in the number of curves, compared with some other forms of layouts.
