Some sample USA-style turnout templates in H0. These are generic templates based on typical USA practice and not representative of any specific prototype:

This file is not suitable for Templot version 074b -- please upgrade to Templot2.

Download from: sample USA-style H0 templates

(Right-click and "Save Target/Link As...")

These are #5 and #8 turnouts, using custom 11ft-0in and 16ft-6in switches (points) respectively.

edit for Templot2 -- when printed, or exported as a PDF file, these templates will now show the rail-foot edges for flat-bottom rail.

Using the F5 mouse action the turnouts can be adjusted to any other size. But because the switches are custom sizes they won't change automatically to match the V-crossing (frog) angle. Take care therefore to create only sensible combinations of switch size and V-crossing (frog) angle.

Likewise using the F6 mouse action they can be curved to any radius.

Here's a typical result of doing those things. These are #7 and #9 curved turnouts:

These templates are in H0. To convert them to other gauges, click the gauge > other gauges... menu item and select the required new setting in the list. Then:

1. for the background templates, click the convert group button.

2. to change the control template, click the match original option and then click OK.
