Dear Martin & fellow Templotters,

I purchased Templot 0.74A on 28/09/2002 and did have a go at learning it then, but have forgotten 99% of it since!
I've now started a new project - ordered the shed, booked a builder to lay the concrete foundation, booked the electrician, and drawn the track plan on the back of an envelope (designed around Peco 0-gauge track.  Last night at the club I was told I should be building my own C&L track, so I guess I should be drawing up the plan in Templot as well.
If there is anyone who can spare a few minutes give me a nudge into the right menus in those new dark unknown areas that were not even a twinkle in Martin's eye when I first started, I should be most grateful.

Firstly I need to draw a 24ft by 13ft rectangle (the shed), followed by a second rectangle 103mm inside the first (the inner wall), then create the continuous running line (c/l 75mm inside the inner wall - works out at about 5ft 11ins radius at the ends, I think), then finally add a passing loop each side (one to clear a 190mm wide island platform, from which I can develop the rest of the station - based on St. Agnes on the GWR Newquay branch; the second at running line/siding spacing from which to develop the fiddle yard).

I know that later, when I need to insert the catch points and the double slip, I will have to face "partial templates", the mention of which has always sent shivers down my spine.

Many thanks,
Andrew Howlett
