Turnout templates

Post by Lynbarn »

Does anybody know of a source for track templates that I can download and print?

I (think I) want to cannibalise two left-hand, two right-hand and a 30deg crossover to manufacture a scissors crossover, a T-gauge equivalent to one of these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Peco-SL-E383F-N ... 0964862146. It will take a fair bit of track surgery, but on a brief inspection, it looks like I can get the geometry to work, but I'd like to try it out on a paper version before I try it for real.

Regards,

Martyn

Hi,

you could try http://www.templot.com/martweb/templot.htm - I think I've got it to draw a t-gauge turnout. Not the easiest program to use but it's what they use in the big rough scales.

Regards,

Ivan.

Go for this bad boy Kato 20-210.

Your going to need to splice in a criss-cross piece.

And a super fine razor saw like this (works great):

It's alright to be itty bitty, runnin' itty bitty trains around an itty bitty city.
