Hi.
I've just joined the club and found this forum, so...as I've just 'completed' my Templot rendition of Radstock...I thought I'd upload it.
The layout fits along one wall of a shed, just over 7m long and about 0.8m wide.  One end then goes through a stud wall into a garage, giving an extra 3m x 0.5m.  The left hand end will have Tyning Bridge about 1.3m from the end, which will serve as a scenic break to give a good metre of fiddle area.  The station sits to the right of the sidings, and extends through the stud wall.  Beyond that is plain twin track as far as I can get it.
Any comments gratefully received!
Thanks.  Pete

Hi Pete,

Welcome to Templot Club. :)

Thanks for uploading your file. You obviously like building double slips -- 4 in a row!

You've gone a bit wrong with the track spacings. You've got 5 tracks all at 6ft way, which isn't prototypically correct, although you may have done it intentionally for space reasons.

On the prototype, multiple tracks are required to alternate 6ft way minimum and 10ft way minimum, so that there is space on at least one side for staff to be safely on the ground if necessary. Here's a nice pic showing why:



linked from: https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/60196-the-human-side-of-the-railway/&do=findComment&comment=4217297

Typically there are up and down main lines at 6ft way, and then slow lines or goods loops on each side of them at 10ft way. If space constraints make it impossible, such as an existing bridge pier, an absolute minimum of 9ft is allowed.

Then if there is another line beyond that, it can be at 6ft way again. And so on.

cheers,

Martin.

Thanks Martin. 
As far as I can see, Radstock did indeed have 4 double slips.  It sits in a valley, surrounded by coal pits - hence the sidings for assembling coal trains.  Oh, and the GWR line ran across the end as well!
I'd missed the spacing issue.  I'm just into my second slip at the moment, so there may be time to make an adjustment.
Many thanks.  Best regards.  Pete
