Yes, you have done something strange! :)

You have set the rail-section to flat-bottom, but then set the rail foot width to be the same as the head width.

See real > rails > rail section data...

That may be intentional to represent some odd Festiniog rail section (?), but since you have set the middle crossing to bullhead I suspect it's an error.

What you are seeing in the print is the intersection of the rail foot lines -- for the vee nose Templot blunts the rail head only. The foot lines are not visible elsewhere because you have set vertical rail and the rail head lines are drawn directly over them.

Foot lines are never drawn on the screen, it would make the diagrams too cluttered, they appear in the output only (and only for background templates, not the control template).

The foot lines are not necessarily prototypically correct -- around the switch planing for example. That's because I don't have enough prototype data, and what I do have would be a minefield to represent on the templates. The main purpose of the foot lines is as a construction guide to make it easier to align FB rail over the template.

Good to see a 3-way stub turnout -- not many of those in Templot. :)

cheers,

Martin.
