I am a complete newbie to Templot, and have an issue with setting the track centres. I need to adjust the centres for standard gauge track but spaced for platforms spaced for Broad gauge, ie, Penryn station circa 1908 on the Falmouth branch.

Hi,

Welcome to Templot Club. :)

The track centres for TS (turnout-side) and MS (main-side) are set separately and are template-specific.

The WAY calculations are based on standard-gauge track and 2.75" rail width.

If you don't know the WAY dimension (distance between inner rails) for Penryn in 1908, you can enter the actual track centres wanted in model mm or prototype inches:

1. click one of these menu items.

2. use these buttons to set the track centres directly.

cheers,

Martin.
