FYI, 16mm single tracks can be oriented either in the center of the fullcoat
mag or towards the edge, depending on what kind of record head was used. You
may see it referred to as 1-track center or 1-track edge.

Subject: Re: [ARSCLIST] help: 16MM mag sound film
I have a lot of 16mm MAG in one of my large film collections and years ago
worked in 16mm film production. I've only ever seen single track on 16mm MAG -
when multiple tracks are recorded onto a single MAG it is usually labeled "Mixed
MAG", but would probably be V/O, music and effects recorded on a single track.
