Hi Geoff,Hello Martin -- I've just spent a while crafting an answer to you but I clicked on Preview and lost the lot! In the meantime you've sent me your latest map comparison.
Here goes again.
Yes, you're right, it's Holborn Viaduct in its original layout and I've spent many hours building up the drawing. I use an external back-up.
I traced a copy of the original LC&DR plan which I was lucky enough to purchase from BR's Plan Arch back in the 1970s. The OS plan you've compared with shows a removal of two redundant lines but the entrance arrangement just north of Ludgate Hill bridge seems to be awry, and this dissuaded me from using it in the first place. However, I'm beginning to think I should review that decision and contemplate redoing the whole thing basing it on that map.
I do have a photo of this splendid trackwork, but it is from a collection. Can I send a copy to you for your eyes only -- I don't want it to find its way onto the interweb?
The feature you ring in red I've had trouble with. I've been unable to get a divergence to give space enough for full support of the left-hand arm of the V. I've tried putting the peg on the FP and varying the switch type but without success.
I will be fully chaired but I think I shall use the traditional rivet-and-solder technique that Tony W uses so effectively. The downside means many hours applying the cosmetic chairs -- but I've done this before on club layouts.
