Hi Brian,

Many thanks for the signal files.

I will write again when I have had time to try them -- I'm a bit tied up in sketchboard coding at present. :)

Many thanks also for the write-up on creating such drawings. :thumb:

regards,

Martin.

Hi Martin,

I have just uploaded another batch of various GWR signal arm files to the image gallery, and have also attached a text file containing the information about each file.

Again, have saved at the usual 18 pixels per foot, and has in the file name, the wording .…_true_scale_.... which has been used to differentiate between those save at your suggested 36 pixels per foot, again the wording .…_over_scale_...., is used to show the difference in the files.

All the best,

Brian Nicholls.

I've been intending to return to this topic for some time. Looking at the dates that is nearly 4 years! Where does the time go? :(

I've been reading through the first 3 pages here, and I'm still amazed at the quality of Brian's work.

Most of his images are included in the Templot2 installation and can be found on your system in the C:\TEMPLOT_DEV\SKETCHBOARD-IMAGE-LIB\ folder.

That folder was intended to be a stop-gap for the initial Templot2 release, pending the creation of some sort of online library of sketchboard images and files, as a shared user resource for all.

I think maybe it is time this idea was revisited. Now that Templot can download and create a list of video tutorial files, it would seem logical to do something similar for the sketchboard files.

But first it would be useful to know how much use is being made of the images already there? We were hoping that others would create and post here images for everyone to share. But as far as I can see no-one has done so since Brian's original contributions. That includes me. :(

Yes I know, the sketchboard still has no user docs, so only those brave souls happy to click anything in sight have found all the sketchboard options. Sometimes I wonder if I will ever catch up with the missing docs.

Comments welcome. How many of you have created layout diagrams, signal box diagrams, control panels, etc., using the sketchboard?

regards,

Martin.

Hello Martin,
                   I had a go with the sketchboard to try and create a footprint for the goods shed to help me align the track through it.It is still a work in progress as the rectangular  nature of it seems to jar with the curved  formation as it stands. I think it will be helpful for placement of other structures as they appear on the prototype layout when I get to that stage. Fog huts, loading gauge, toilets,and a few other structures.It should highlight possible clearance issues due to it being wrapped.As for documentation,you can only do so much especially if you prefer to do other things.Your efforts creating and improving Templot far exceeds what most people achieve or can even think of through life so documentation is an added bonus for all of us users.
Regards.
Trevor. :)

Hi Martin

I have used Sketchboard to create trackplans for information on exhibition layouts.

I am also using it for planning a couple of layouts that I have in the pipeline to see what space I have for buildings, both railway and non railway.

Cheers Phil
