Please could you attach your BOX file of a template matching the Cliff Barker kit?
I've spent a long time looking at his web site, but unable to find any prototype information at all relating to the switch sizes or crossing angles. There isn't even a downloadable template as far as I can see:
Getting a constant timber spacing through an entire turnout is going to be tricky, because the prototype doesn't work that way. Here's an overview of the settings:
For a regular V-crossing you can set the closure fill spacing to an exact figure by careful adjustment of the crossing entry straight (SHIFT+F11 mouse action), which modifies the lead length.
When creating a custom switch, there is an option to let Templot create the timber spacings. Which in practice means the closure infill spacing flows through the switch as far as the switch toe.
If you can post your BOX file, I will make the required settings for you.
I hope I've managed to send you the BOX file (BH 1C REA semi-curved C+V-7 LH) okay. I couldn't find anything on Cliff's site about switch detail either but have attached what I consider the nearest to what I have already. Cliff only specifies the turnout radius (5000mm in this case) I have been giving thought to cutting off the locating plugs on the sleepers so as to give me some freedom to get the correct prototype timbering.
Thanks in advance!
