The following tutorial is in 15 parts in order to accommodate the file size limitations of the site.

Enjoy.

It looks like a revision is needed. The .doc file got rejected.

Try putting it in a PDF format so all platforms can download it and be able to read it. Not everybody has a program able to read a .doc file.

Any progress on this front? I would love to see the tutorial as a .doc or PDF. The last time I hand laid a turnout it was spiked down on a 1x4 without ties, just to see if I could do it. I was 14 and I don't recall it working well if at all.

Thanks,

Thayer

Yes Reg, I hope that you haven't lost the desire to do this.

I think that I told you in a PM that just because I have a similar ''how to'' here, is no reason for you not to show your way of doing it--certainly your way might be better, or easier for a beginner to comprehend.

So?:pop:

This is going to happen. I just need to get everything converted to .pdf.

This project seems doomed to failure. PDF files will not post, either.

I will see if I can convert these to .jpg.

The .jpg file that is the least bit readable is over 900 KB.

I just noted that attachments can be .txt. I will see if that will work.

Instructions? We don't need no stinkin' instructions!

Well, we are going to try this in ZIP format...

GAD ZOOKS!!! It worked!

The first installment is attached. There are a whole bunch more. I will get them zipped and posted a bit later in the day.

If you do not have an "un-zip" application, you will have to get one. I use 7-Z which is an Open Source application. It works great.

I will still need to post in small bites. ZIP does not reduce file size by very much.
