Back From The Drawing Board

Templot Screen Dump
After purchasing Templot (www.templot.com) earlier this year, I have been running through a few tutorials to try pick it up. Above is Mk 1 for the layout plan, simply two B6 RH turnouts and a 3 way tandem. Simply not being the optimum word here.
Thanks to printing this out full size I have a better feel for how big the layout will actually be, I had feared the point work would cause the sidings to be too small, but the coal wharf can still handle 12 16T minerals and a class 25. Result.
The fiddle yard has also been drawn out, but I'll save you from a few dull lines and leave it there for now.

Hi Bryn I haven't got Templot, but the more I see it in action the more I like it. It certainly allows tweaking to fit the proposed area, a lot less messy than pencil and rubber. I look forward to seeing the layout develop.

Marks Quay has been on the back burner for a few weeks whilst I re-vamp the 2mm Assoc Yearbook for next year. Still should be back to modeling soon! See you at the GJLC in June 2010.
