 Note though that Therion positions cross section scraps relative to the points and linepoints within that scrap, *not* relative to the station within it. Normally, stations are not in the exact centre - horizontally and vertically - of their passage. Therefore you will normally need to adjust the position of your "​section"​ points so that they are slightly offset from the station, causing the passages to be positioned more correctly compared with their station. This is a manual process, and you may need to temporarily add a visible point type on the station until you have finished adjusting the position. Note though that Therion positions cross section scraps relative to the points and linepoints within that scrap, *not* relative to the station within it.

 Use a text editor to copy the lines and points from the existing cross section'​s scrap, into the newly created multiple-cross-section scrap (which will normally be in different .th2 files).

 Note that this relies on all the existing cross sections to have been drawn facing the same direction. If not, they will need to be manually redrawn facing the correct direction. Note that this relies on all the existing cross sections to have been drawn facing the same direction.
