Re: Ulpha Light Railway

... centre or right at the top, they give various options for routes through the formation, equivalent to a double slip. I messed around a bit in Templot and came up with a location for one on Ulpha. The plan is to build one off the layout and thoroughly test it.I shall use it on Ulpha. If I can ...

Crossing vee soldering problem

A feature to note is that when you are building 19 West points (TR5306 on the Templot drawing) you'll need to extend the check rail towards the switch, and may wish to adjust your Templot drawing accordingly. As to the query about ...
