Hello there,
I'm planning to build a small H0/0n30 layout (4' x 4'). Can I use Bachmann Branchline OO gauge (1:76 Scale) track & points ?
All my locos and freight cars (H0 and 0n30) are from Bachmann Smiley
Many thanks in advance for your time and your answers.

I believe so, their website says the track gauge is 16.5mm, the same as HO and On30.

The track is the same. The difference is the 1:76 OO is 4mm/ft for cars, buildings, etc., while HO is 3.5mm/ft. It sounds close, but there's a noticable difference when you couple an OO passenger car to an HO car.

If at first you don't succeed, throw it in the spare parts box.
