Do try and have a look at a copy of Bob Essary's "Railway signalling and track plans" published this year by Ian Allan. This confirms 34C's comments about variable sleeper spacing.
The other reason why it might not look right is because the sleepers are slightly smaller than they should be, and this may be more noticeable when they are spaced further apart.

Personally I haven't bothered to alter the sleeper spacing on my layout. Once ballasted I think the closer spacing and sleeper size is less apparent to the eye than with unballasted track.
