I'm doing a scale drawing (1" = 1') of a simple layout I've designed. How do I draw scale turnouts? Are there free templates someplace on the Web? HO scale. Assume Atlas Code 83 flex track and either Atlas or Peco turnouts.

Thanks!

I tried to search the NMRA web pages for turnout drawings...no luck..

However in the past, I just photocopied the ACTUAL turnouts I was gunna use, then was able to do a number of things with the print.....

regards
