P4 Track co

Postby Hardwicke » Sat Dec 24, 2016 11:39 am

Does anyone have a P4 Exacto P4 Track Co A5 LH turnout plan handy? I've mislaid mine and cannot remember which chairs go on 2,3,4PL and 2,3 and 4 PR.
Thanks

Hi Michael,

If you go here: https://www.scalefour.org/members/tracktemplates/dl.php?f=a5lh.pdf you will be able to see, print or download a copy of the template.

Don't forget that if you print one, they are about 2% over or under-sized. I forget which. But it's all been discussed here on the Forum if you need the details.

HTH,

I'm having a problem downloading the PDFs from the website. Does anyone recognise this problem?

Not quite... I was mixing some final present wrapping with a couple of hours of playing with software and reinstalling drivers (of the computer type) to try and get my bl**dy SPROG to work.

It's the first time I've touched it in a couple of years, and now I remember why :-(

Merry Christmas to you all!

Never seen a screen like this. Using Safari, I just clicked on the link and down it came. It took me longer to find the page!

Yep, the downloads haven't finished and you've got incomplete files. Try to download them again.

In Safari I get the same problem although from your screenshot, which I take is from Finder, my size is showing 2Mb but the file will not display, just does nothing.
Firefox on the Mac no problem, downloads and displays. Had a look around Safari settings but can't find anything to solve the problem.
Only got the Mac in my webmaster days for testing purposes, found Safari a bit picky so installed Firefox as an alternative......would suggest installing Firefox....?.....and see what you get.

The templates on the links don't tell me anything I don't already know. The printed Exactocsale templates had the numbers of which parts on the sprue a 4PL for instance was made up of (19,33 and 6 in the case of a right hand turnout) The templates on the website just say "4PL" and shows a little drawing. That doesn't help.

Thanks. I changed RH to LH in the link and I found exactly what I wanted. Really useful page. I can finish the point now.

I tried downloading again, same problem occurred. I went over the digests and they downloaded correctly. I had to use Chrome to download the templates.

Getting templates on a a Mac (MacOS Sierra 10.12.3) required Firefox. Just information based on previous postings, for which thanks.
