Re: The Bridge

... as the track I had built for it was totally useless. But with the announcement of the British Finescale points and 3D printed track straight from Templot, building the track now seems possible. It turns out that the area between the road bridge and the Barry viaduct including a reasonable amount ...

Re: Turnout Construction - a summary of what I've learned from the Forum and Templot

To illustrate part of the previous post*, here is a photo of a turnout showing the mechanism that actuates the stretcher bars at both ends of the full length of the blades. The turnout is part of a trailing crossover at Kirkby Stephen station on the Settle to Carlisle line. * for the sake of complet...

Re: Turnout Construction - a summary of what I've learned from the Forum and Templot

The great thing about learning to make your own turnouts is that then it's just as easy to make them any shape and size, curved or straight, like the prototype does, particularly on the main lines. This is the last turnout I made for my Kyle layout, copying the prototype as far as I could tell. The ...

You don't need to do that, there are various measuring tools available within Templot to do this on screen.
