This is my first venture into the Templot world of forums, topics and messages. I hope it is in the correct format and in the right forum (couldn't find a way of changing the forum for this message).

I'm working in S4-X and have an awkward arrangement of a tandem turnout with a running line intersecting it. The running line diverges from the left-hand arm of the tandem and runs across the other two arms. The problems I have are in the detailing:

(1)  how do I make the diamonds when they're within the bounds of the turnout? I've resorted to crafting the V and K crossings individually using the gaunt turnout procedure for adding a third V to a tandem turnout. The Vs I can cope with but the Ks are more awkward, especially when trying to match the radii involved. I'm sure there must be a more elegant solution somewhere but I'm afraid it eludes me. The count of partial templates in the clean-up rises by the day!

(2)  how can I detail the ends of wing and check rails where a rail intersects them -- the cut ends need to be angled to match the intersecting line? I can remove the flare and adjust the lengths but cannot see how to adjust the end shape to match the angle of the intersecting rail.

I'm spending hours on this with little obvious progress. Any help would be most appreciated.

Regards

Geoff
