Re: Bodmin General (1955)

... General makes more sense - the fact that I can use the stock for Wheal Elizabeth as well is a fortunate bonus! I need to do a refresher course on Templot now that I can see how to get the base plan uploaded so hopefully there will be a few days when I can actually sit down and concentrate on the ...

I'll have to expand my Templot skills I think so I can try and overlay the templates onto the plan as well as trying to understand the nuances of GWR P-Way construction.

Re: Eversley Green - P4 BR (S) layout

... lots of items in one go, so slow work. It was never envisioned that this would be a fast build :) What I might do is draw up a few different Templot templates for a few different points (similar to what I'll need for this layout) and attempt building those, and if they work out ok, then move ...
