So I went under the presumption that branch line after you said Martin, was 10ft.
I did some random math and blew up the drawing by x1.08.

It is the difference between 9mm UK N gauge and true scale gauge of 9.7mm



By the off chance the branch lines up, so ka-ching?

Hi Damien,

That looks about right:

Double -track running lines - 6ft way (134" track centres between them).

Loops and sidings alongside - 10ft way (182" track centres from running lines).

The track gauge is irrelevant, you need to calculate based on the scale. N gauge in the UK is 1:148 scale, which is 2.06mm/ft.

But Templot does all that for you. Just enter the prototype spacing in inches, 134 or 182, or whatever else you want.

regards,

Martin.

15ft-2in = 182 inches. That's the minimum of course -- it could be wider.

So the program compensates for curves. Very nice.

Templot doesn't compensate for curves. That's what the dummy vehicle tool is for.
