Hi Andrew.
Since no one else appears to have taken up your challenge, I thought I would have a go.
Well done so far.
The Tandem needed several changes to it to make it work, the main one being that the two turnouts were set at differing radii so would not line up. The curvature of the inner road was very tight. I have managed to ease this slightly. The next stage was to place the third crossing at the intersection of the two rails where the notch should be if it loads as saved. This was not an easy task as the radius changes very close to this vee hence my two part solution. If you step through the box file you will see the numerous partial templates required. You should try to retain the timbers for each crossing and switch set as they will be at the correct spacing but alter the length to suit.
I have also had a go at the trap points. The one on the inside looks sharp, but is probably the best solution given the circumstances. I have also sorted out some of the timbering elsewhere although there may still be some more that I have missed.
I have also changed the box file title so it saves by default. To do this open the storage box and select the Edit drop down menu "box title (project title)"
Good luck with your project.
Tony.
