    Robert, sorry for late reply, I hadn't noticed there was a message for me.

    Anyway, I used Autocad, drawing everything from scratch. I tried & used the plastic template to get started but wasn't pleased with results. The template however did give me a fast & nasty idea of what I wanted to do as did the old proven method of laying the track on the table to get a real feel of what I could do.

    Autocad, or anything like a CAD program will take a good learning period, but I tried the free program from Atlas and never was able to do much with it that I liked.

    I havealso updated the drawing and rotated the layout drawing to Agree with the Control Panel.

    Hopefully I will get a few minutes to post new picts of both.

    What did you use to draw out your layouts like that? I'm using paper and pencils with the old fashioned plastic templetes/stencils. We are looking for a better way to draw out my layouts? If using a program which program and we need it to be very easily understandable. Thanks
