I'm currently drawing up a couple of NER interlaced turnouts for a friend as per the screenshot below:



Is there a way to ensure that the sleepers on the curved route are centred on the centre line of the curved track?

Hi John,

How about overlaying a piece of plain track on the curved road.

Please do not send requests for help direct to me via email or PM.

Post your questions on the forum where everyone can see them and add helpful replies.
Hi John,

Sorry, there is no automatic function to do that. Even if you use a partial plain track template, the sleepers won't be at the required spacing and will need shoving and/or twisting to fit between the main-road sleepers.

However, there is a trick you can use to help. If you temporarily add a turnout-side platform, you can adjust the front edge to provide a guide line. Set the front edge spacing... to half of your current plain sleeper length. I assume for NER you have set 9ft sleepers, so half that is 54 inches:



Then you can use the throw mouse action in the shove timbers to align the end of each sleeper to the line.

cheers,

Martin.
