Thanks for the file.
A C-7 is a strange size, "all switch and no turnout".
That's typically what results when someone tries to design a turnout as a simple radius with no proper switch deflection.
However, it is what it is, and if that is what you have you probably have to stick with it. For a garden railway the waste of space from an unnecessarily long switch probably doesn't matter.
The scale/gauge combinations for Gauge 1 are a minefield, and I simply entered the options in the Templot list as the best agreement I could find.
If your timber spacing is 22.5mm, that suggests a scale of 10mm/ft was intended for 27" timber spacing.
However, I note from the web site that the timber width is 9.5mm, which suggests a scale of 1:32 was intended (9.525mm/ft) for 12" wide timbers.
Whatever, I assume your choice of 1C gauge (10mm/ft, 1.75" gauge) matches your requirement, so I have left it unchanged and set the timbers at 27" centres (22.5mm at 10mm/ft).
Box file below, with timbers spaced at 27" (22.5mm) constant all through.
Take care using these templates and don't make any internal adjustments to them, because I fear Templot will instantly switch back to more prototypical spacings if you do.
