I was searching using Google looking for model track references and came up with this image:



I think that this is a model but at the same time is also the real thing. She is not weary a high visibility vest but I'm sure that an engine driver would not fail to spot her.

PS. Must be an age thing but on seeing this photo I immediately thought that the rail seemed to be held in the chairs by Mills Clips.

Perhaps I need my eyes tested but ............

dt, the indoor station, that is an amazing, I've spent ages looking at it, and because of lack of people it still looks like a model to me are you sure that Jim S-W isn't behind this picture? biggrin.gif

dt, again with those curves and slopes until you check out on google you just don't believe it either.Make me feel good about Arboretum Valley though smile.gif

Greyvoices, you do realise your likely to get pm'ed by modellers wanting to know where to source one of these for themselves...hattons et al could make a fortune if they can get them in stock tongue.gif

Shame on you Jukebox,

The important thing is to identify the track baseplate and rail fixing.

That said, I am sort of reminded of a tale from my earlier railway career; a certain old time British Rail member of staff ended up as the safety manager for track workers on the Anglia region. Computers were being introduced but he had no truck with such new fangled bits of kit and would issue notices written in a very distinct copper plate handwriting. He became concerned about workers disgarding their high visibility vests in hot weather and instructed that wearing them around the waist was an acceptable alternative. Unfortunately he did not ask a colleague to proof read the instruction before it was duplicated and pinned up on mess room walls throughout the region. One line caused much hilarity, it went:

"when wearing an HVV around the waist you must ensure that you have six inches showing"

The notice went on:

"compliance is required to avoid fertilities on the line"

He just could not spell "fatalities".

I well remember visiting Chesterton Junction Depot where I overheard one of the workers lamenting that it might be all right for some but at his age achieving the required measurement was nigh on impossible (or words to that effect).

I think that's enough from me and I apologise for going off topic.

Best regards .............. Greyvoices (alias John)

*** LOL, I know its tilt shift photography DT... we have had some previous discussion about it - I was suggesting that its a good way to learn how not to make a model look like a model by considering the differences vs a normal image.

I'm not able to measure the cant (careful!) from that angle, so wouldn't like to guess about the baseplate - but are those Vossloh screw fastenings?

As for the MU's on Platform 6 & 7 - the modeller needs to a) invest in some people to populate those platforms, and cool.gif try his or her hand at weathering - that glossy out-of-the-box look is soooooooooo Hornby!*
