Hi all,
Martin directed me that this might be a better place to post a question that i put on another model railway forum, so here goes!

I've put together a rough plan in Templot which I think I like the look of and want to take further - but it requires a number of tweaks that I just don't have the expertise to do myself. I know this is a skill I can accumulate over a number of years, but I'd rather spend that if possible building track as a result of the templot plan. I was wondering, if anyone of this parish might be interested in making the following plan 'finished' (in the sense that the geometry works, the timbers are in the right positions, etc.), for a payment to a worthy charity (macmillan, a locomotive trust/heritage railway, the royal british legion, etc.)?
 
This is the plan: https://i.imgur.com/rJBYDAh.png
Box file is attached.
 
I am happy to discuss terms and/or the specifics of what I'd like, but it roughly pans out to:
  1. Properly aligning the track/timbers so it can be used as templates for laying track (though I think I'm mostly fine with my angles, I have no idea about how to do this 'properly')
  2. Maintaining a minimum radius of 24" using B-type 1:6 and 1:7 geometry.
  3. Slimming the goods yard down a bit (prob just adjusting the fan a bit, the goods shed should have the covered track on the top side as well, so that may help)
  4. Shuffling the track at the 4' mark so the layout can be split into two halves (again, it took me hours and hours to get this from a verbatim copy to the compressed version you see here!)
Many thanks!

Hi William,
I'l be happy to look at your plan and work on it so it suits your purposes.  A donation to Prostate Cancer Research would be appreciated.

That would be most grand, can you email me or let me know your address? Of course, I will happily post the result here at the conclusion for everyone to enjoy :)

Best wishes,
