Sorry, a Dapol kit I've never tried.

From the base to the underside of the girder is 80mm and the girder is 18mm high, the width of the kit "out of the bag" was designed to span 3 tracks at set-track spacing, mine is extended to span 4 tracks.

Hope this helps

Thank you luckymucklebackit.

But it is the span that I need to know.

Ok... Thank for help but I think I will use this gantry (not for signalling) I was unsure if I needed 2 or 3 depending on the span, so what I have done is order one then measure up and order others if needed.

I will add measurements here for others to see if they need them.

The Dapol C017 Signal Gantry arrived this morning so here are the measurements.

First of all they are as Luckmucklebackit said "From the base to the underside of the girder is 80mm and the girder is 18mm high"

The span if built as instructions is 162mm this is in two sections with a 1mm centre piece, the shortest section being 71mm and the longest 90mm so it can be built as 71mm, 90mm or the full 162mm span.
