Hello everyone, thanks for allowing me to join the group.

I am new to Templot and also track building, I have built a train room for my son in the garage and looking to build a layout, I have bought part of a club layout that was surplus and found it has Scaleway by SMP track work, I have done some research and would love to extend part of the layout in our room, so basically looking for all the help I can get.

I have found a shop near me at Sheffield that sells the kits and track so looking to start by visiting there, what I cant find is help tutorial/videos etc of actually building track.

I will be using 00 gauge trackwork , I will add some pics of the layout.

Thanks,

Jason.

Hi Jason,

Welcome to Templot Club. :)

This book from the  2mm Scale Association is a good starting point for newcomers to trackbuilding. It covers more than 2mm scale:



Available from:

 http://www.2mm.org.uk/products/trackbook/index.html

SMP Scaleway is a popular choice for plain track. But once you get started in Templot you will find that the SMP templates don't match prototype practice, and most users prefer to build their pointwork on templates printed from Templot.

For a long read (150 pages) about a layout using SMP Scaleway, Templot and trackbuilding (and the option of using the 4-SF/00-SF standards for 00) see this topic from Gordon S on RMweb:

cheers,

Martin.
