Hello,Im trying to work out (having finally drawn my 3 way successfully, how to draw a single slip that one line of the crossing is straight and the other on a curve.
 So far I've just got 2 running lines crossing each other, but need to move on from that, make a diamond then add the slip.
Hope the pic of the offending prototype single slip makes sense.
Its been fabulous templot has enabled me to past the map and make the exact track plan possible and I look forward to making c12 points!.
As ever very grateful for some help, Im also using templot 2 version 2.14b running on my MacBook courtesy of Wine.

thanks in advance 
Michael

Please do not send requests for help direct to me via email or PM.

Hi Michael,

With one track straight and the other curved, you have an irregular diamond-crossing, and the new make slip function won't be able to help you.

Making the diamond-crossing is easy -- have one track in the control template. Click the background template and then peg/align tools > make diamond-crossing at intersection.

After that you will need to add the slip roads manually. The video at help > watch a video > single slip shows you what to do.

If the video is not there, first click help > obtain video list.

If the curve is very sharp, a single-arc slip road may not align too well with the other switch. In that case you can create a better slip road using the make transition function.

p.s. Thanks for the picture, which interestingly shows slab & bracket chairs for the slip chairs, instead of the the usual cast chairs. That is a good indication that this is an irregular slip and a one-off special design.

Thanks for your kind words. I'm glad you found Templot helpful.

regards,

Martin.
