Elsewhere in MRF (Overhead and Third rail) there has been debate on the lack of both overhead line equipment and conductor rail for the SR electrics holding down the sales or even the existance of EMUs and electric loco models.

Even if we had some form of ready-made quickly-added conductor rail, I have not come across a book or other publication giving detailed prototype practice as to how the conductor rails were laid out, particularly around pointwork. I was bought up in SE London and regularly travelled by EMUs, yet cannot put together more than vague impressions of how the 3rd rail was installed.

Any sources of information, anyone?
