Hi Bob,

Here you go:

Note that Templot's 45ft setting is a generic pre-group setting, not specifically GWR.

If you want the prototype GWR sleeper spacings you need to click one of the custom slots in the list, and then click the custom settings... button to enter the data.

Stuart Hince has written a tutorial on setting up custom rail lengths and sleeper spacings in Templot. It's specifically for the GWR, see:

https://85a.uk/templot/martweb/pdf_files/gwr_track_panels.pdf

After that it would be worth saving a library template containing some GWR plain track so that it's easy to use settings in future.

cheers,

Martin.

As always a gentleman and thank you. I do believe that GWR track was 19 sleepers to a 45 foot length on branches but 20 or 21 on the Main Line.
