Turnout templates

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 to handlaidtracks.com. They have templates for everything BUT t. but you can reduce the drawings.

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