Hi,

I have got most of my plan sorted (I think), but am struggling with an effective way of aligning and spacing the three lines that feed onto the traverser, so that any traverser position will enable all three lines to be connected (if required).

I have attached a box file to make this clear, is there a function or technique I can use to ensure the 3 lines approaching the traverser are parallel and the same distance apart?

Many thanks

Chris

Hi Chris,

Welcome to Templot Club. :)

Do the straight tracks on the traverser first. Align the layout tracks to them afterwards (F7 snapping is quick.)

Start with the first traverser track.

Set tools > adjacent track centres... so that the MS and TS spacings are both the same (and wide enough for convenient use on a traverser).

Then keep clicking tools > make double-track MS and tools > make double-track TS alternately, until you have enough tracks.

regards,

Martin.
