Still very much in the 'I don't know what I'm doing' category, I'm having a go at working things out and wondered if this is how to make a catch point.  I made two identical templates and stripped away all unrequired components from one of them - until I was left with this …

Any good?

Cheers … Alan

Have just found the tutorial video! Therefore please don't spend time answering - I'll come back if I can't figure it out.

Cheers ... Alan

Hi Alan,

Templot is a tool to use any way you wish. Overlaying partial templates is one way to create a set of catch points -- and the only way if it falls within other pointwork.

But overlaying on plain track isn't a good idea, because the timbering will be plain sleepers instead of wider timbers, and they will be at the wrong spacings for the special switch chairs.

For a simple stand-alone set of catch points, all you need to do is shorten a turnout to the stock rail joints, and there is a pre-set function to do that. Most model catch points use short 9ft or "A" switches, but you can use any size you wish if you have space:

 

If you use the "shift & join" functions, they will snap onto the end of the catch points in the usual way, or you can use the CTRL-9 functions.

There is a page about catch points in the Companion at:
 
 http://templot.com/companion/catch_points.php

including a video showing how to insert them.

Also about reducing it to a single-sided catch point.

edit: posts overlapped, no problem Alan. :)

cheers,

Martin.

Hi Alan,

I have made a new catch points video for Templot2, to replace the old out-of-date one:

 https://flashbackconnect.com/Default.aspx?id=si_mVF-fRWnCF1NnT1c0Yw2

It's in a shorter slide-based style which is much faster for me to create.

cheers,

Martin.
