This template accepts a track gauge and returns that defined track gauge well formatted, plus the converted size value by another unit:

  • {{Track gauge|1520 mm}}1,520 මිමී (4 අඩි 11 2732 අඟ)
  • {{Track gauge|4 ft}}4 අඩි (1,219 මිමී)

Extra options are available:

  • {{Track gauge|1520 mm|lk=on}}1,520 මිමී (4 අඩි 11 2732 අඟ)
  • {{Track gauge|1520 mm|al=on}}1,520 මිමී (4 අඩි 11 2732 අඟ) Russian gauge
  • {{Track gauge|1520 mm|allk=on}}1,520 මිමී (4 අඩි 11 2732 අඟ) Russian gauge

Input options[සංස්කරණය]

The first parameter specifies the gauge:

  • {{Track gauge|1435 mm}} → 1435 mm
  • {{Track gauge|4 ft 8.5 in}}4 අඩි 8 12 අඟ (1,435 මිමී)
  • {{Track gauge|4 ft 8 1/2 in}}4 අඩි 8 12 අඟ (1,435 මිමී)
  • {{Track gauge|56.5 in}}4 අඩි 8 12 අඟ (1,435 මිමී)
  • {{Track gauge|Standard gauge}}1,435 මිමී (4 අඩි 8 12 අඟ)

Rail track gauges can be entered as they are defined: in units mm or ft in. Also common accepted names can be used, see below.

The input value (a length, in metric or imperial units) must be a defined track gauge. Currently 137 gauges are defined by metric units, and 136 by imperial units. Some are defined in both unit sytems, in both, such as the standard gauge.

  • When an input value is not recognised by the template, the template simply returns the input as it is: {{Track gauge|25in}} → 25in
The page with this unknown input is also listed in a maintenance category, in the background, that signals interested editors that there is a new rail gauge used in Wikipedia. More on this below.
  • Some gauges in metric are defined in metres: 1 m is recognised. However, it is not available for all metric defined gauges. Using mm is a safer bet.

Formatting input[සංස්කරණය]

When entering a track gauge (like {{Track gauge|1435mm}}, these are formatting options. Keep in mind that only defined gauges are recognised.

Spacing is free, and fractions can be used in imperial units. Primes (' and ") may be used for [foot, inch]. Any [foot, inch] size can be entered in all-inches (4 ft 8 1/2 in equals 56 1/2 in and 56.5 in).

  • Names can be universal, being defined worldwide. For example: Iberian gauge, 1,668 මිමී (5 අඩි 5 2132 අඟ) Iberian gauge. Other names can be localor culturally restricted, for example the name "Cape gauge" is used in South Africa for 3 අඩි 6 අඟ (1,067 මිමී), but not in Japan (in Japan that same track gaugfe is not named).
  • Also, two sizes can lead to one gauge name.

Named gauges[සංස්කරණය]

Established gauge names can be entered. The word "gauge" can be omitted. Case-insensitive (A=a). See also the |al=, |allk= parameters (below), to show a gauge name in the outcome.

English variant (ENGVAR)[සංස්කරණය]

For articles written in US-English, it is possible to set parameter |engvar=en-US. In this situation, the US-English spelling is shown (metER):

1,000 මිමී (3 අඩි 3 38 අඟ) metre gauge

Why not use {{Convert}}?[සංස්කරණය]

To convert a track gauge, using {{Convert}} comes to mind. For example, standard gauge:

  • {{Convert|1435|mm|ftin|abbr=on}} → 1,435 mm (4 ft 8.5 in)
However, this has some disadvantages. First of all, track gauges are defined by an institute, not just measured. The list of defined track gauges is limited, and oversee-ablle (today: some 260 sizes, by mm, are defined).
Using {{Track gauge}} allows us to track (follow) all articles with a specific gauge (see the options-list on this page, and Cat:Articles that mention a specific track gauge).
Also, the track definition can be directly linked to the sourcing article: 1,067 මිමී (3 අඩි 6 අඟ).
Further more, the template allows to recognise named gauges such as "Russian gauge".

Tracking category[සංස්කරණය]

{{Track gauge}} detects that an undefined gauge is entered, and signal for maintenance. For example, metre gauge is only defined in metric. Entering an imperial size would categorise that article in Category:Articles using template 'Track gauge' with unrecognized input (8).
