Re: Thornliebank Goods

Alex,
Would you be able to post an OS Map showing relative position of places you mention, as its not a part of the world I know well. Hoping I might be able to dig out some material for you.

Re: ModelRail Glasgow this past weekend

Excellent news Jim. Have now got mine via post. A very fine volume and benefits enormously from the larger format allowed by Lightmoor, with regard to the many fine photos Niall has acquired.

Re: Perth to Glasgow Route

Hi VL,

As discussed offline I can probably find you signalling diagrams for most of these sites but its an extensive list so will take me a little time.

Re: Landslip at Falls of Cruachan

Hi Graham,

Looking at the photo there is a line of fencing with what looks like weldmesh, but behind it another section of fence that looks more like the 'piano wires'?

Hi John,

Not sure if this elucidates any but was a chance to get info digitised as I seem to have missed Kirri in my Board of Trade reports index.

Hi John,

Attached for your interest the earliest diagram I have for Kirrie'. I have various notes on signalling changes that I'll transcribe over next few days and post for general interest.

Re: Cove Level Crossing

Very helpful thanks John. So given a structure and there is a SP nearby that might confirm a crossing operated by a keeper.

Re: Gauntletted track

Hi Jim,

I would hesitate to gainsay someone of John's knowledge but out of curiosity I just dug this diagram out for Brocketsbrae. which seems to suggest double worked catch point[s] were used rather than interlaced tracks.
