I have two tracks off a siding in front of a warehouse and the spacing happens to be the same as an Inglenook, 5, 3 and 3 cars fit on the siding without fouling. It is a very short siding and a switcher and three cars can move the other way on the siding and not foul at the other end. I have 8 Legos and write the car marks on a Lego in Sharpy (when I want different cars, it wipes off with alcohol) and sticking the Legos together in a random order determines the train to build.
