  2. Hello Keith,
    SCARM is not able to make electrical check of the planned layout nor to advice how the points should be powered, but most experienced model train hobbyists will be happy to help you, if you ask for that in some of the model railway forums in the web.

  3. I’m trying to use SCARM to create a N Gauge layout drawing using the PECO-N-80 track templates and I finding that it is impossible to create a turnout leading to two parallel tracks. The turnout I have used is SL-395. I am unable to then use a predefined curve that will result in a parallel track to the straight through one. Am I missing something here Can you advise how I can dot it please? If it is not then I will need to look else where for software that will.
