Just looked at this for the first time in several days. At your usual rate of progress Rob shall I put you down for Scaleforum 2019?

I have done it as two turnouts, but I can do it as a tandem if you would like. Do you have any preference for a minimum radius? I have used Templots minimum, so far.
Phil, very nice gesture and thank you, it will be a tandem with minimum radius. I'm only a slightly advanced novice with Templot but first I have to see how things pan out with the various ideas I have, i.e. need to do the buildings and see how they come together, if the 'working' screen materialises then the positioning of them is important to give the effect I want. I may take up your offer of the tandem at a later stage and will mention you in dispatches......
.........many things to develop and I'm already revising the initial plan with plan B, plan C etc......
At the end of the day my approach is to provide a visually interesting and convincing display, the railway is secondary.......albeit an important part of the display......
