Here is the missing section. It is numbered "11A" and fits in between 11 and 12 (DUH!)

:doh:

Just to satisfy my curiosity, and confirm what I have been saying, I dug out my most recent copy of the NMRA "The Official Guide of the Model Railways". This book is, or at least used to be, the central publication of the NMRA.

I was a little surprised to see that my "latest" copy is No. 13, published in July, 1972.

I also noted that there is a paper clip (rusty) marking the turnout specifications section. You can use this data to create your own turnout templates for any size turnout you might want.

I visited the NMRA web site and found that you can download the "Recommended Practices" from the site. The RP for turnouts is RP-12.

I should hope. I started the current layout in June, 2009. Just got the last turnout laid this summer. I think there are 15 turnouts.

It takes me about four hours to fabricate and install a turnout if I don't mess something up.

Enjoy.

Going to take a little while more time than I have tonight, but this should be a VERY interesting read.

Thanks for persevering, Reg!

I just finished up my first read and learned a lot. I look forward to a few more rounds as I go forward. Thank you both for the inspiration.
