|I would like to know the reason behind lesser spacing than the Gauge that to be provided. Can anybody clarify it?|

|The gauge distance is the distance b/w running face of rail but flange has 19 mm gap from running face so flange distance 19 x 2 = 38mm sorter.
-> Means slightly short.

|To prevent touching of flanges of wheel to the inner side of the rail.|
