Templot demo at Scaleforum - 3-way tandem turnouts

It seems that someone was asking about 3-way tandem turnouts on a Templot demo stand at Scaleforum. The demonstrator didn't mention that Templot now includes some automated functions to create tandem turnouts.

Thanks Keith. The thought of using Templot had occurred to me but I run a Mac which gets indigestion with Templot. Your other idea is a good one, I shall keep it in mind.

Re: Ballasting ply sleepered track

Having recently completed a three way once the pre-assembled Vs are in the correct position everything else is gauged from the Vs and not from the underlying templot plan, that just serves as an approximate guide.

Hello Nigel

Your friend working in EM is then using the vees (pre-positioned) to work out from when laying the rest of the track as the templot print is by then under the pollyfilla ballast? Or does he trace another templot print onto the tops of the sleepers?
