Can you explain what you mean by a turning circle?

Do you mean a locomotive turntable?

Or a return loop, like this:



There is a very old video showing how to create that at:

 http://templot.com/martweb/return_loop.exe

Sorry it is so old, if you have problems following it please ask again.

regards,

Martin.

Hi Peter,

Sorry, our posts crossed.

The usual way to create a turntable is to use a dummy plain track template. Set it to geometry > centre-lines only (dummy) menu option.

Then curve it to the required radius* for the turntable ring. geometry > radius and curving... menu item.

To run the tracks across it, use geometry > peg positions >peg on mid-length.

You can then use F8 mouse action to rotate it, and store (INSERT key) as many tracks as you need as you go round.

*radius is half of the diameter -- turntables are normally specified by their diameter.

regards,

Martin.
