Apologies again if this has been asked before but a friend of mine is currently working on KX loco yard in S7 for a friend of his and I'm planning on the same layout in O-mf, can the plan be converted once finished from S7 to MF or will it have to be restarted from fresh?
TIA, Paul

Hi Paul,

Go to gauge > other gauges... menu item. Select the required new gauge/scale on the list. Click the convert group button above the list. If you haven't created a group of templates, you will have the option to group all of them for the conversion.

Unfortunately it is not mathematically possible to do a perfect conversion unless the gauge:scale ratio and the gauge:flangeway-gap ratio remain the same. In practice this means only the proto gauges convert closely: S7 - S - P4 - Proto87 - S2 etc., and even then there may be some tiny differences.

For other gauge conversions there are likely to be some slight mismatches, overlaps or gaps between the templates which need tidying up. But usually this is much quicker to do than starting again from scratch.

The plain track templates will always convert exactly, so these shouldn't need changing and make a useful guide in re-adjusting the pointwork templates to fit.

regards,

Martin.
